Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
The National Foundation for Credit Counseling® (NFCC) today launched its newly redesigned website, http://www.NFCC.org. Whether consumers are interested in improving their level of financial literacy with tools such as educational podcasts and videos, projecting future payments through a bevy of online calculators, or locating an NFCC member agency to find solutions to their financial concerns, the enhanced tools and navigation will create a more streamlined experience.
“The NFCC is continually looking for ways to help consumers find the solutions they need to improve their financial well-being. We’re proud to provide this latest financial education resource, and hope that Americans will take advantage of all that the website has to offer,” said Susan C. Keating, president and CEO of the NFCC. “The new contemporary and interactive website was developed with today’s tech-savvy consumer in mind, as it is fully functional on all mobile devices and tablets, and provides additional ways to receive financial tips via social media.”
Users will immediately notice a contemporary look, increased ease of functionality, well-designed navigation and speed. Consumers will enjoy easy access to the services that NFCC members provide, including financial counseling, housing assistance, bankruptcy counseling and education, student loan counseling, and credit report reviews. And, perhaps most important, connecting directly with an NFCC member agency is simple and straight-forward.
