Financial Literacy

Welcome to CreditGuard’s Financial Literacy Center.

Here you’ll find a wide range of information relating to credit, credit cards, home buying, retirement information, bankruptcy, and more.

Congratulations on taking the first step toward becoming debt-free. For over 20 years, we’ve been helping consumers like you get out of debt by negotiating with creditors to lower their interest rates, lower your monthly payments and potentially wave any over-the-limit fees. In fact, under our debt management programs most consumers are able to completely pay off all their debt within 3 to 5 years.

Our certified credit counselors take a hands-on approach to helping you readjust your budget to help you learn to live within your means. We take a look at your income, your various bills and your debts to help you create a budget you can stick to. We teach you the skills necessary to not only get out of debt, but to stay out.

Take a look below for more information on how you can tackle your debt.
