PeopleFund holds free credit information counseling through the BB&T Banking Company this month. The experience is designed to welcome and encourage those in the East Austin area looking to learn more about their credit score to come by and do so.
BB&T parks their bus outside of the PeopleFund building and invites locals to come inside and meet one-on-one with a BB&T financial expert. Their goal is to better inform those about their credit score and the information pertaining to it. The very friendly and welcoming staff is eager and happy to help anyone looking to check out their current credit score for free. The will also answer any questions or discuss any concerns about what exactly that information means.
After filling out a short online application, clients can view and print out their full credit report to take with them. Then the BB&T financial expert will go over and explain the client’s account information, evaluate that information with the client and explain how it pertains to them. The BB&T employee will also let the client know if there are any discrepancies in the report or anything that might be of concern and explain how to address those. The well-informed staff is willing and able to help with any credit score needs or answer any credit related questions.
PeopleFund has helped to put on events like these in the past and has found success with them. The event is a wonderful opportunity for those in the area who may not know what their credit score is or know anything about their credit report to get free assistance from a financial professional.
The organization knows that it is important for clients to know their current credit score and credit information and encourages those in the East Austin area and abroad to come by and learn more about their credit. Those who are interested can stop by the bus or simply register online at the PeopleFund website for an appointment with a Capital and Credit Coach until August 29th.
