Pen Air Federal Credit Union Announces Partnership with BALANCE®
Financial Fitness Program to Provide Counseling and Education
PENSACOLA, FL (August 7, 2013) — Pen Air Federal Credit Union (FCU) announced its recent partnership with BALANCE® Financial Fitness Program to provide members with unbiased money management information and services.
Rising consumer debt, ever-increasing numbers of bankruptcy filings, and growing numbers of predatory financial services have resulted in a greater need for comprehensive education and counseling from trusted resources.
“This new partnership with BALANCE® will provide our members convenient access to tools, assistance, and online training dealing with a wide variety of financial topics,” said Pen Air FCU Vice President of Marketing, Patty Veal. “We are dedicated to helping our members reach their financial goals, which is why we are pleased to provide this new member benefit.”
BALANCE® provides financial education and counseling services such as money management, debt repayment plans, credit report reviews, new homeownership, identity theft protection, preparing for retirement and more – all free to Pen Air FCU account holders.
Proactive money management and debt related services have the power to off-set bankruptcies and prepare members for financial goals like purchasing a home and planning for retirement.
Pen Air FCU is committed to our community and strives to provide support to our members throughout their financial journey. For more information on BALANCE® or to speak with a counselor today, visit www.penair.org/balance.
