Seeking Financial Help

The August poll hosted on the National Foundation for Credit Counseling website revealed when consumers are in financial distress, they prefer reaching out to a qualified professional over other options.

Most poll respondents, 45-percent, indicated they would contact a certified financial professional, while fewer would utilize online education. A financial self-help tool, or attend a financial workshop.

However, regardless of which option someone chooses, the important thing is to take the first step.  Consumers should choose the course of action that is right for them.

  • One-on-one financial reviews either in person, by phone, or online.
