How TopLine Members Benefit from LSS Services:

A TopLine member attended a seminar and learned about the Financial Choice benefit available to her as a member. She was able to meet with an LSS certified financial counselor a few times over the next six months to work on improving credit. Due to her hard work and the information she learned from the financial counselor, her credit score improved significantly (over 80 points!), paving the way to better credit options in the future.

 

The Johnsons were affected by the pandemic and were able to work with LSS Financial Counseling certified financial and housing counselors to address their situation in a holistic manner. They received guidance regarding their mortgage. The Johnsons were also able to utilize the Debt Management Plan to pay off their credit card debts with an affordable payment.

 

A TopLine member attended the LSS student loan seminar. Afterwards, he made an appointment with an LSS certified student loan counselor to learn more about his student loan options. In the past, he had felt overwhelmed and did not know where to start so the student loans were ignored. Now, he was ready to make amends with his financial past. Over the course of multiple appointments, the member made a budget, learned how to access his account information on studentaid.gov and figured out what his payment would look like. Going forward, he feels confident that he has a clear plan to resume payments on his loans!
