What It Is, Who It’s For, And How It Can HelpProvided by GreenPath Financial Wellness
Have you ever wondered if credit counseling might help you? Most of us have never stopped to even think about what credit counseling is until we find ourselves facing a financial roadblock. Credit counseling isn’t just for those who need to improve their financial health — it can also help you to be more proactive in maintaining your finances as well.
Credit counseling, also called debt counseling, is a process that helps people manage their finances and solve problems with debt. Credit counselors work with people to:
What is Credit Counseling?
- Manage money and debt
- Create a budget or spending plan
- Understand credit scores
- Learn about options, tools and educational resources for getting out of debt
Credit counseling is for anyone who wants to improve and maintain financial health. Maybe you’re looking to buy a house, or refinance your car, or be prepared for financial changes. It’s a great option to help you be ready for whatever your financial life throws your way.
Who Can It Help?
Credit and debt counseling could be helpful if you want to:
- Get out of debt
- Make and live on a budget
- Improve your credit
- Relieve stress and anxiety about your finances
- Buy a house or save money for a big goal
There are no rules about how severe or mild your financial concerns need to be. We encourage you to trust your instincts, and if you sense that talking with someone would help, credit counseling is a great step to start a new chapter in your financial life.
Our credit counseling services are provided through our partnership with GreenPath, who conduct most of their counseling sessions by phone. The first person you talk to will ask you some questions about your financial situation and what you need, and they will connect you to a financial counselor who is an expert in that area.
How Does It Work?
A typical counseling session takes about an hour and includes:
- A review of your financial situation
- An overview of different options for accomplishing your goals
- Recommendations for your situation
- Development of a personalized action plan to support you on your journey
