Get to Know Our Financial Education Partner, GreenPath

We put our members at the forefront of everything we do and that includes providing the best financial resources available to help members succeed. That’s why we continue to partner with GreenPath to supply a vast library of financial education resources that includes financial coaching.

What is GreenPath?

GreenPath is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that provides free financial counseling and financial education to credit union members and associates. The GreenPath team believes everyone deserves a chance to pursue their dreams and knows that financial health is a key factor in getting there. When people are financially well, they have more freedom to live the lives they want to live. They have more power to make choices about things like how they spend their time, where they live and work, or where their kids go to school. The GreenPath mission is to empower people to lead financially healthy lives. They are a member of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and HUD-approved for housing counseling.

How much does GreenPath cost?

There is no cost for financial counseling. A counseling session typically takes about an hour, and a member can expect to have a conversation with their counselor to discuss their entire financial situation. They will help you drill down to the root cause of any concerns you have and review income, expenses, debts and your credit report. Additionally, they will review your goals for the future and help you come up with an action plan for what to do next. There is no agenda or sales pitch. They are here to be a resource for our members.

How Can GreenPath help?

GreenPath works directly with individuals on a 1:1 basis to allow for a more personalized plan that is specifically tailored to the individual’s needs. The GreenPath program gives members access to a financial counselor that can help with a variety of financial topics. Some of those topics are:

  • Creating a spending plan
  • Learning how to plan out your paycheck and better manage money
  • Debt management planning
  • Avoiding bankruptcy and repossession
  • Understanding your credit report and how to improve your score
  • Mortgage default and delinquency counseling
  • Student Loan counseling
  • Pre-purchase counseling to prepare members for homeownership
  • Financial education resources

We want to make sure our members succeed, which is why most GreenPath resources and counseling sessions are completely free to our members. Knowing is half the battle when it comes to financial success. Take advantage of these resources to get and keep your finances in a good spot well into the new year!
