The Constitution State, or the Nutmeg State, is one of the wealthier states in the country. The per capita income in 2007 was nearly $65,000, ranking fourth in the nation. The state’s main industries are transportation equipment, weapons and technological manufacturing, as well as a flourishing seafood industry. However, the state also reflects a great disparity of incomes throughout the state – though Connecticut has the third largest number of millionaires per capita in the country, Hartford has one of the lowest per capita incomes for U.S. cities. Connecticut ranks third in the nation in terms of highest credit card debt, with each resident at an average of $5,617.

This economic disparity and overall consumer debt problems have led to many Connecticut residents in need of help getting out of debt. We offer Connecticut residents accredited credit counseling, budgeting assistance, financial education, and offer also our debt management plan to qualified individuals.

Our certified credit counselors provide Connecticut residents with consumer credit counseling services in the comfort of your own home via telephone and the internet. You can call us directly, or apply online and get a head start by filling out some general information on our online application. Privacy is guaranteed.
