Nonprofit Credit Counseling Center offers remote financial counseling during COVID-19 crisis

Credit Counseling Center, a nonprofit organization that has provided financial counseling services to the Bucks County community for more than 26 years, is offering assistance for people who are concerned about paying their mortgage, utility, credit cards and other bills because of the COVID-19 crisis. The center is open and operating remotely, and phone counseling appointments are available. Professional counselors are ready to assist people who are dealing with income or job loss, to explore options relieve their financial burdens. This includes strategizing about: which bills to pay first; mortgage issues; credit card concerns; bankruptcy questions; student loan payments; and budget review and emergency budget planning. The center’s certified financial counselors say: be proactive and call your lender if you’ve lost income - mortgage and credit cards; companies, and other loans; be patient - it may take a while before you get through; revise your budget and develop a plan that will get you through this uncertainty; and review your spending priorities and eliminate non-essentials. Contact the lender, credit card company, or utility company; explain how COVID-19 has affected you financially; and ask your lender to consider hardship options due to loss of income.
