What Is Financial Counseling?
Do You Need It?
Managing one’s finances can often be challenging. Most people, at one point or another, feel money-related stress. You don’t need to feel alone when it comes to improving your financial wellness. Whether it’s household budgeting, debt management, credit repair, or just financial problem solving, it helps to have an advocate to get you on the right track. Recent LSS Satisfaction Surveys from 2020 show that of people who've used LSS Financial Counseling:
- 90% indicated they felt more confident with their finances after their meeting
- 85% indicated they felt the counseling would help them to sustain a more stable financial future
- Participants of the LSS Debt Management Plan saw an average decrease in revolving debt of $5,360 in the first year of their program.
SCCU has a special partnership with Lutheran Social Services — our members and members of their household can attend four financial counseling sessions free of charge. In fact, in the more than 10 years we've had our partnership with LSS, our members have paid back a total of more than $2,509,275.00* in debt.
