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 focus on their jobs.
Emergency Funds and Loans — Coaches help you save money over time to cover emergencies, which can help you reduce your use of loans or avoid negatively affecting your retirement balances. If an emergency savings does not exist or is not enough, TrustPlus’ financial coaches can help you look at all possible options.
Student Loans and Credit Card Debt — 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.
Preventing Payday Loans — When your savings are insufficient, a financial coach can help you find a more affordable alternative—often through a local financial institution or an online lender. Avoiding payday loans can significantly reduce the stress of high-interest debt.
