Ask a Financial Counselor

The Ask a Financial Counselor Tool is for you!
  • Are you direct service staff delivering financial education and asset building activities?
  • Need advice about a challenging issue with a client?
  • Have a question about a financial education topic?

Users of this website are invited to submit questions that arise in your practice and interaction with clients. While we cannot offer legal advice, we will post responses with both technical financial information and suggestions. Ask a Financial Counselor is not intended for direct use by consumers, rather it is designed as a resource for direct service staff to submit questions related to their work.
