How TrustPlus Can Help
Some of the areas in which coaches can provide assistance include:
Day-to-day money management — TrustPlus’ financial coaches help their clients take control of their money so that they are less stressed and better able to make financial decisions.
Emergency funds and loans — Coaches help clients reduce the use of loans, especially high-interest payday loans. If an emergency savings does not exist or is not enough, TrustPlus’ financial coaches can help clients look at all possible options through financial institutions or online lenders.
Debt management — TrustPlus financial coaches are experts on debt management and repayment strategies that allow clients to feel in control of their debt – not overwhelmed by it.
