American Consumer Credit Counseling Hosts September Financial Education Webinars

Paying Student Debt on September 14; Saving for Emergencies on September 30

Boston, MA – September 9, 2021

National nonprofit American Consumer Credit Counseling, Inc (ACCC) announced today it is hosting two free webinars during the month of September hosted by Peter Mullen, Community Educator at ACCC.

The webinar on ‘Paying Off Student Debt’ will be held on Tuesday, September 14 at  1pm EST. The Department of Education announced Student Loan Deferral is set to expire on January 31st, emphasizing that this will be the last extension. Paying for college is on par with other major life expenses, such as a car or a house, and leaves consumers with a significant amount of debt. In fact, having too much student loan debt often impedes one’s efforts to buy a house or condo. We will explore different options college graduates can use to tackle their student debt.

The webinar on ‘Saving for Emergencies’ will be held on Thursday, September 30 at 3pm EST, commemorating the end of National Emergency Preparedness Month. We all know having an emergency fund is important but making it a priority and following through by saving money every month is another story. We will examine the downside of not having this fund and focus on the most realistic and workable ways to save money no matter your budget. To register, click here.

Mr. Mullen has served in a variety of financial services and training roles for over three decades for for-profit and non-profit organizations. His financial services experience began with program and project management on an institution level, but Mr. Mullen has most enjoyed his recent work directly with people in need of homeownership, financial literacy, and counseling. Currently, Mr. Mullen is passionate about improving people’s lives through education, speaking at neighborhood groups, and advocating sound financial well-being techniques.
