U.S. Bank Provides Credit Wellness Program To Educate Consumers
More Americans are seeing their credit scores decline, as evidenced by a recent FICO report that revealed more than 43 million Americans carry a rating below 600. Although more individuals are working with professionals who provide debt relief assistance and consumer education, many banks are now offering workshops to customers to help them improve their financial condition.
U.S. Bank has just unveiled a Credit Wellness Center website aimed at providing credit education to customers. The website will provide tools and courses that will teach consumers how to manage their credit score, quizzes to test their knowledge, and advice on making wise money management decisions.
"U.S. Bank is committed to helping consumers understand how to use credit wisely, and why establishing a positive credit history is so important for their financial health," U.S. Bank Retail Payment Solutions chief marketing officer Cliff Cook said. "The U.S. Bank Credit Wellness Center reinforces our commitment by offering consumers an easy-to-use, one-stop credit education resource."
Consumers can also find a number of credit, budgeting, saving and investment resources online through counseling agencies, banks, lending institutions and consumer advocacy websites.
