Half of the year has gone by, and this is a time for evaluating progress. People set financial goals in January and take a moment now to assess how they are doing. Changes or modifications might be needed to clear any obstacles.
Facing a Challenge
Everyone is feeling the effects of inflation. The June figures were high, and food and gasoline prices are not decreasing. Money is tight, and the average consumer must stretch the dollars to cover the bills. This belt-tightening is coming at a tough time.
Eviction moratoriums will soon vanish, and college debt deferrals will only last so long. Other financial obligations give solid blows to the checking account. Anyone will feel stressed if there is no money at month’s end. Financial wellness is a significant worry.
Organizations that care about their employees want to help. Employers provide benefits to enable their workers to cope with costs, but that sometimes is not enough. Some assistance with financial wellness would be appreciated at this time. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services provides a benefit employees can use.
The Best Assistance
We have a financial wellness program that provides results! Those who use it have various money issues. We have a nationwide network of certified counselors. They are financial professionals who are ready to help plan members. We have one in the community of every client, and our plan members receive top priority treatment.
Main Service Areas
The primary financial wellness benefit we provide is personal budget analysis. Our counselors will review a plan members’ cash flow and recommend modifications. We will also conduct an asset inventory to determine a plan member’s total value. Other services we offer include:
- Help with college debt
- Advice dealing with medical bills
- Assistance with bankruptcy or foreclosure issues
- Specialized debt management assistance
- A self-study program on homebuying.
What services we provide will depend on the client.
Choice Is Essential
We aim to provide a benefit that every member of an organization’s workforce may use. However, we are not familiar with the demographics of a prospective client organization, so we do not readily know what services they need. Therefore, we ask the management of the prospective client to help us.
Those decision-makers have a better idea of what their employees need. We will explain all our financial wellness services and show how each one can provide a unique benefit to employees. We never try to promote one service over another and are transparent in our explanations.
Once we have explained everything to their satisfaction, we ask the decision-makers to select those options that will be part of their financial wellness plan. Those choices will be in the final document. We provide streamlined administration and superior member services.
A Guaranteed Countrywide Benefit
We provide one benefit to every client, which comes at no cost. Our counselors are recruited for their financial understanding, but we want something more from them. Financial issues are extremely sensitive and often embarrassing for a person to discuss. We expect our counselors to be able to overcome that hesitancy. Consequently, listening skills and emotional intelligence are priority qualities we want to see.
Our counselors solve problems based on what a person tells them, not what we think should be the solutions. A Countrywide counselor listens very patiently to the concerns of a plan member. Workable solutions are discussed after that. Our counselors will give suggestions based on their experience, but in the end, the plan member decides. We advise.
We do not know what the rest of 2022 will bring, but some financial problems could surface in the coming months. Employees are better equipped to face the challenges if they get excellent advice. Our clients can count on that coming from Countrywide. If you are interested in us, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
We look forward to explaining how we can be of exemplary service.
