Let’s Take a Deep Dive Into Financial Counseling
The first step to a financially stable tomorrow is facing your situation today. Ultimately, financial counseling is that step forward with access to useful information, practical knowledge, and the tools and expertise needed to navigate your financial future. If you’ve fallen behind in your credit card payments, are receiving calls from collection agencies, or are from a low-income household struggling to manage current expenses or grow your savings, counseling may provide you the answers to improve your financial health.
How Does it Work?
Once we receive your call at the NFCC, you will be directed to one of our certified agencies and appointed a trusted credit counselor. On average, the session takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Most of these conversations with a counselor can take place over the phone but some NFCC Member agencies offer online and in-person counseling. Once you review your financial challenges and goals with your counselor, they will work with you to create an actionable plan to conquer your debt in manageable monthly payments.
