Investopedia explains 'Periodic Payment Plan Certificate'


In the past, periodic payment plan certificates were frequently sold to military personnel despite there being no advantage for military personnel to own this type of investment. Because of related abuses, the Military Personnel Financial Services Protection Act, enacted Sept. 29, 2006, made it illegal to sell periodic payment plan certificates to military personnel. The act did not invalidate existing certificates held by military personnel.
