As an HUECU member, you have access to free, certified financial counseling through our partners at GreenPath Financial Wellness. But, that’s not all! GreenPath offers a wide variety of services – from credit report reviews to educational courses – to help you improve your overall financial fitness. Here’s a breakdown of some of their most popular offerings.
Credit Report Review
Regularly monitoring your credit report can help you to notice any errors and alert you to potential fraud. Being familiar with your credit report is also an important step toward strengthening your credit score, but sometimes understanding a credit report can be confusing. Luckily, GreenPath’s certified credit counselors are available to walk you through your credit report, making sure you understand all of the information included and how it affects your score. Having GreenPath do a soft pull of your credit report, won’t negatively impact your credit score. Work with GreenPath to make a plan for managing your credit today!
There are many aspects to maintaining healthy finances: from creating a budget, to managing debt, or understanding student loan repayment. GreenPath is available to help you every step of the way, whether it’s a one-time call or multiple calls, you have access to GreenPath for as long as you need. Whatever your financial journey looks like, GreenPath can help with in-person or virtual counseling who will provide a personalized Action Plan after all your sessions. Learn more here.
Debt is a very real part of being a financially independent adult. Having debt doesn’t have to be scary, but it is important to know how to manage it. GreenPath provides both the support and tools you need to take control of your debt. Their financial counselors work with you to make a personalized plan aimed at eliminating your debt (or at least helping you get to a less overwhelming place with it) and increasing your savings. They look at your individual financial concerns and stressors and help you to understand your options. Learn more about debt counseling here.

From financial wellness worksheets to calculators and webinars, GreenPath has something for everyone – and every learning style – when it comes to building your financial education. In fact, their Learning Lab+ platform offers everything from recorded lessons to guided handouts, allowing you to learn at your own pace. Learn more about GreenPath’s free educational resources!
