The Elements® Financial Monitoring System


I'm Erik Baskin

After graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 2018, I wanted to start a business. Personal finance has always been a deep passion of mine, so I went and got my MBA, passed my CFP exam, and started Baskin Financial Planning in 2021 while still on Active Duty. Through my time serving clients, I have realized that the entire financial planning industry is ignoring the vast majority of military members that do not want or cannot afford a dedicated financial advisor for thousands of dollars per year.

This is why I created BLUF Finance. A place where military members can go to receive straightforward, actionable education, resources, and ongoing monitoring at a price that any servicemember can afford.

You're safe with me. I'll never spam you or sell your contact info.
