WASHINGTON,– United States Senate Federal Credit Union (USSFCU) is partnering with GreenPath Financial Wellness, a leading national nonprofit organization, to address critical needs among community individuals and families impacted by COVID-19 pandemic measures.
Through the partnership, USSFCU offers free phone based GreenPath financial counseling. GreenPath’s counselors will assess an individual’s entire financial picture and identify options that can relieve stress and make it easier to bounce back.
“Our hearts go out to everyone who has been impacted by this crisis. We know that many of our families and neighbors are concerned about their financial welfare,” said Timothy L. Anderson USSFCU President and CEO. “If COVID-19 measures are affecting your income, you’re not alone. Together with GreenPath, we have put programs in place to provide needed assistance and help ease financial stress during this extraordinary time.”
GreenPath Financial Wellness is a national nonprofit organization that provides financial counseling, education and products to empower people to lead financially healthy lives. Working directly with individuals and through partnerships since 1961, GreenPath has assisted millions of people with debt and credit management, homeownership education and foreclosure prevention.
“We understand the stress and uncertainty this pandemic is creating for individuals and families across the country,” said Kristen Holt, President & CEO, GreenPath Financial Wellness. “By partnering with USSFCU, GreenPath’s team of HUD Certified Housing Counselors and NFCC certified credit counselors is here to help you prepare for and navigate the financial effects of COVID-19.”
In addition to financial counseling services USSFCU is working one-on-one with members to find solutions to meet their needs. Waiving and refunding certain fees and penalties, providing flexible payment options for loans and providing loan extensions in certain situations are a handful of ways they are helping. USSFCU has also rolled out a Relief Loan, tailored to help members get through these tough times.
For 85 years, USSFCU has provided the U.S. Senate and Capitol Hill communities with world-class financial stability, security and service. Now with 100 plus paths to membership, almost anyone has the opportunity to experience the USSFCU difference.
