Can the Military Look at My Bank Statements?

Financial information is some of the most carefully protected personal information in America… but that doesn’t mean no one can ever see it.  For example, when a crime is being investigated, law enforcement can gain access to your bank records. So, what about when it’s a military command investigation?  Technically, a command investigation into alleged military misconduct could gain access to a bank account, but the Investigating Officer or “IO” would still need to go through the same judicial process as required for a law enforcement investigation: obtaining a valid warrant from a court.  In reality, the lack of expertise and systems supporting command investigations makes this highly unlikely.  Commanders cannot, on their own, access your financial records under normal circumstances.
