First Nebraska Credit Union is proud to announce it has partnered with GreenPath Financial Wellness, a leading national nonprofit organization, to provide access to free, one-on-one financial counseling, debt management services and financial education resources. FNCU Members will have access to this benefit starting August 1, 2020.
Through the partnership, GreenPath counselors will assess an individual or family’s entire financial picture and identify options that make it easier to plan for a financially healthy future. Caring, certified experts deliver debt counseling to help people manage credit card debt and other consumer debt. GreenPath’s housing counseling includes foreclosure prevention services, home buyer preparation assistance, and reverse mortgage counseling. GreenPath counselors also provide student loan counseling.
Additional benefits include budgeting software, online courses, workshops, videos, webinars, articles, and financial literacy programs for young people that we will offer to our members via our website.
“Those we serve who might be concerned about their financial picture are now in a better position to make informed decisions for a bright financial future,” said Rich Sullinger, FNCU VP of Lending. “Whether it’s credit card debt, unexpected loss of income or meeting housing payments, it’s important to remember you’re not alone. GreenPath’s financial counseling is free, confidential, and designed to help ease financial stress.”
“The First Nebraska family now has access to caring, judgement-free counseling that strengthens financial wellness at every step of the financial journey,” said Kristen Holt, President and CEO, GreenPath Financial Wellness. “As a national nonprofit in service for nearly 60 years, GreenPath is ready to help those seeking guidance through our team of HUD Certified Housing Counselors and NFCC certified credit counselors.”
