COVID-19 has caused big changes in the academic world. Football games are canceled and classes on Zoom are more frequent. Campuses are going virtual, but something has not changed: tuition.
Students are required to pay for their classes and may take out major loans to afford the price. Loans are creating higher levels of anxiety among students. College debt is threatening the financial wellness of many, and many important life decisions are being delayed or given up on because of the figures. Organizations offer tuition assistance, but additional help is necessary. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services offers a financial wellness benefit that gives substantial support.
College Debt Can Be Managed
Tuition does not have to be a runaway freight train. People can get everything under control with the right guidance and information. Countrywide offers both.
We have a nationwide network of certified counselors who are there to help financial wellness plan members. These money professionals deal with everyday economic issues and there is one in every community where we have a client organization.
Handling sizable debt will require putting the financial house in order. Our counselors will do a budget analysis to examine a plan member’s cash flow. The data is then used to make needed adjustments, so that college loan payments are affordable. Our counselors know of various programs that will make college financing easier. They willingly share information with plan members. The counselors can pinpoint where additional funds can be obtained.
The Employers Influence
An employee benefit must be there for all employees. The services should not help only a few. Countrywide does not know all the needs of an organization’s workforce. Consequently, we seek the advice of the decision-makers. We will explain all our financial wellness benefits and answer any questions. The client will tell us what benefits will be in their plan. We include such requests in the final document and we provide superior member services and streamlined administration to make sure that people get the help they require.
Quality Service Can Be Expected
College tuition quickly becomes the size of a mortgage, and that is enough to frighten anyone. People who face college debt sometimes make abysmal decisions, such as relying on forbearance or even filing for bankruptcy. There is no need to panic and make drastic decisions. Countrywide can be relied on to provide help.
Folks get embarrassed when they discuss their financial situation, and we understand that. Countrywide is a problem solver and not a preacher. We will not trouble a person with lengthy sermons or admonitions to be thrifty. Instead, we will search for answers to problems and make valuable recommendations.
We prize emotional intelligence because we know how much it means to a client. We look at counselor candidates not just for the financial knowledge but also for understanding people. We want counselors that have empathy and excellent listening skills. Those are the kind of people we work with and they even give priority to our plan members. No Countrywide plan member is going to have to wait a ridiculous amount of time to get assistance. Financial wellness is particularly important, and our counselors take it seriously. Do not worry about social distancing issues. Our counselors practice social distancing and do everything possible to make a plan member feel comfortable.
A college education is vital in the modern age. Those who have the degree are in a better position to advance than those who do not. That is an obstacle that can be overcome with the right advice and assistance. Countrywide gives that kind of help to all financial wellness plan members.
