This is Andrea ...

After losing her job 6 months ago she has been struggling to get back on her feet. The bills are piling up and she has numerous creditors calling her on a daily basis. She doesn’t have any extra cash to pay her bills, and just paying her rent is getting tough. With no job prospects lined up, she feels lost.

What should Andrea do?

What should Andrea do?

  • A

    Ignore the creditors and let the slow progression of her debt continue to rack up, never being able to pay it off.

  • B

    Pay off some of her debt, let her rent fall behind and risk losing the roof over her head.

What happened?

Andrea knew she needed help. She contacted a credit counseling program supported by United Way. They reviewed her financial situation and suggested options that best suited her needs.
