Acing Personal Finance After Graduation

Fox 25

By FOX 25 | May 27, 2014

With students graduating with an average of $26,000 worth of student loans, they're just adding to the millions of Americans who hold over a trillion dollars worth of student loans. Being financially literate is not always something taught in schools, so it's important for soon-to-be grads and recent grads to learn about fiscal responsibility and how to best handle debt. ACCC's Matt Paradise recently appeared on FOX 25 to discuss the topic.

American Consumer Credit Counseling is a non-profit credit counseling and debt management center for individuals and families who want to settle credit card debt and learn to live life debt free. In our free counseling sessions, our certified credit counselors help consumers make a debt reduction plan for eliminating credit card debt over a period of time – usually five years or less. After reviewing a client’s financial situation, counselors work with consumers to find the best path to credit card debt elimination. This may involve providing education about credit card debt and bankruptcy, comparing debt consolidation vs chapter 13 bankruptcy or debt settlement services, and answering basic debt reduction and debt consolidation questions, such as “what is credit counseling?” and “how can I protect my credit score?”
