If you are receiving unsolicited phone calls from an entity pretending to be ACCC (a trusted non-profit credit counseling agency), please be assured that ACCC’s policy is NEVER to contact you unless you’ve explicitly requested us to call you. Also be cautious of emails from an unusual or unfamiliar domain. ACCC’s domain extension is @consumercredit.com, and any emails using a different extension should be treated with suspicion.
ACCC offers debt relief options to individuals and families that are suffering from stress related to credit card debt by providing effective credit counseling, helping to consolidate debt, and advising on debt management.
It’s never too early to teach kids about money. Unfortunately, most kids aren’t learning about money at school, which means it’s up to parents to talk to their kids about credit, budgeting, and other aspects of financial literacy. And the sooner parents begin talking with their children about money, the more likely their kids are to develop smart money management habits.
Our Youth and Money financial education section provides parents with children as young as five with resources to teach smart money skills. In this section, you’ll find an overview of how to talk to kids about money and lots of materials that make learning about money fun.
Get a breakdown of the core concepts of financial literacy with kids, starting with understanding currency and spending to credit and budgeting for older kids and teens. Find out how to help kids earn money, including doling out allowances and helping them find jobs.
No matter how old you are, it’s never too soon to start learning about personal finance! These resources begin at kindergarten and provide financial advice to students through their post-college years. There’s even a fun video page for younger kids with financial advice from Scrooge McDuck and the Berenstain Bears.
