ST. PAUL, Minn. (4/11/12)--The Minnesota Credit Union Network's (MnCUN's) Network Service Corp. has partnered with Lutheran Social Services Financial Counseling Service (LSS) to help credit union members learn financial skills.
Through the new relationship, Minnesota credit unions can offer members access to financial counseling.
LSS financial counselors are certified in both credit and housing counseling and specialize in helping individuals avoid bankruptcy, foreclosure and debt settlement scams. Through LSS, credit unions can offer members education on how to develop money management skills, and guidance on reading a credit report, budget and debt counseling, debt management planning, and foreclosure prevention counseling.
"The services offered through LSS help to further differentiate credit unions as the smarter financial alternative," said John Ferstl, MnCUN vice president, Network Service Corp. "LSS has combined social responsibility with the need to minimize losses in order to develop financial services that are mutually beneficial for both credit unions and members."
