NFCC launches new interactive consumer Web siteMortgagePress.comNational Foundation for Credit Counseling, NFCC, Web site, Gail Cunningham Consumers can now find all of the financial help they need under one roof. The National Foundation for Credit Counselings (NFCC) redesigned Web site, www.DebtAdvice.org, allows consumers to access numerous financial education tools or reach the NFCC certified credit counselor closest to them, all without leaving the site. "It can be argued that there has never been a time when consumers needed financial tools more. And, when you need help, you want it fast. You don't have time to waste going from site to site. You might say that www.DebtAdvice.org is the HOV lane of the Information Highway," said Gail Cunningham, spokesperson for the NFCC. The Consumer Tools section is packed with practical information including: • A printable budget worksheet for tracking monthly expenses; • Access to financial calculators to help understand low long it will take to pay off credit card debt, what amount of mortgage debt can reasonably be sustained, or how long it's going to take to save enough money for that special purchase; • Consumer tips on relevant everyday topics such as saving, credit, debt, and job loss, among others; • Consumer resources such as NFCC publications and videos and useful links; • Videos of Financial Fast Facts along with real life Success Stories, and • A "Tell Us Your Story" area for consumers to voice how they're faring in today's economic environment. Of particular interest to consumers in financial distress is the ease with which they can connect with the NFCC Member Agency closest to them through the secure online portal. Whether they need credit counseling, housing counseling, or the mandated bankruptcy counseling and education, they can arrange an appointment without leaving the site. And on the fun side, there's even a poll where consumers can cast their opinion on current financial issues and see how they stack up with the rest of America.
