If your debt has become unmanageable and too stressful, your credit union has a full-time financial specialist from ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions on site to help you identify the sources of your financial burdens and make informed decisions.
During a confidential and personalized no-cost credit counseling session, Jerry Cruthis will provide you with an objective assessment of your financial situation. This includes reviewing your credit report. In addition, he will help you create a realistic budget and give you the tools to manage your money better.
Cruthis can also provide housing counseling, whether you're about to buy a home or are struggling with your current payments.
Cruthis is a financial specialist certified by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), the nation's largest and longest-serving credit counseling network. He works out of our Swansea, Illinois branch but can meet with members at any Arsenal branch (by appointment) or over the phone.
