# MyCAA: A Military Spouse’s Guide to this Valuable Benefit
As a military spouse, you may be unaware of all the benefits available to you.

This program provides financial assistance to eligible military spouses who are pursuing a license, certification, or Associate’s Degree in a portable career field and occupation.
## What is MyCAA?
MyCAA is a career development and employment assistance program sponsored by the Department of Defense’s Spouse Education and Career Opportunities (SECO) program. The program provides up to $4,000 (over two years) of financial assistance to eligible military spouses who are pursuing degree programs, licenses, or credentials leading to employment in high-demand, high-growth portable career fields and occupations.
## Who is Eligible for MyCAA?
