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.

Examples of options offered by NFCC Member Agencies include:

  • One-on-one financial reviews either in person, by phone, or online.
  • Dozens of NFCC Member Agencies offer online education courses through webinars, podcasts, videos, and printed materials.
  • MyMoneyCheckUp.  This is the NFCC's free financial self-assessment tool.  Follow the link to get access.
  • Group workshops are offered at NFCC Member Agency locations at community events or on-site for employees of local companies. If you are interested in finding an upcoming workshop in your area or to schedule presenter, search online for an agency near you.
