Is financial counseling free?
Yes. General financial counseling, including credit counseling and debt counseling are free. Some of our specialized services (reverse mortgages and home-buyer assistance, for example) have a fee.
How long does a counseling session take?
The first general financial counseling session takes about an hour, although it will depend on your unique situation and what you need to accomplish your goals.
Do I need to make an appointment?
Appointments are required for in-person counseling, but not to talk to a counselor by phone.
What if I don't have time for a counseling session now?
No problem! We can complete as much as you have time for, and finish up at a more convenient time. You can also schedule a call-back when you will be available.
What do I need for my initial session?
One of the first things a counselor will do with you is put together your budget. Having an idea of your income and expenses is helpful. If you have billing statements handy, even better!
Will you keep my information confidential?
All client information is secure and confidential. GreenPath will not share your information with anyone without your permission. We also do not report to credit bureaus.
