Within the last 2 months Advantage Credit Counseling has received approval and licensure for conducting credit counseling in over 6 US states alone. Michigan and Virginia are the newest states to be added to this ever growing list.
Advantage CCS is happy to announce that they’ve received their license and state approval to provide credit counseling to individuals who live in Michigan and Virginia. The Agency is working hard to become licensed in all 50 states by the end of 2013. With these two new states added to the list, they only have 7 more states to go before they reach their goal.
Each state has their own rules, regulations, and procedures for becoming licensed in that state to provide free non-profit credit counseling and a debt management program. Some states are more difficult than others to obtain said license, but Advantage CCS has made it their number one goal to become a nation-wide organization before the end of this year.
Credit counseling sessions are typically the same no matter what state you live in. It’s always best to look for a Non-Profit Credit Counseling agency that’s a member of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC). It is also a good idea to check out client reviews, view their mission statement, and find out what their Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating is. You want a reputable and trustworthy agency working with you.
Credit counseling is not just for people who are in debt, anyone can benefit from it. The session will include budget work, determining if you have a “shortfall” of money each month, recommending different debt relief options if you do, and if appropriate, suggesting a Debt Management Program that could help you get out of debt as quickly as possible.
