Need to get your financial house in order? IAVA is proud to announce  that we’re joining forces with Citi and CredAbility to launch CredAbility ReConnect , an online financial counseling and education program for service members, veterans and their families.
We hear from our members throughout the country their families need unique guidance and support to maintain their long-term financial health after the service. We believe that not one of the 2.4 million Americans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan should have to face unnecessary and significant financial pressures when they return home.
Data compiled from IAVA, Citi and CredAbility show some alarming statistics that highlight the need for this innovative program:
CredAbility ReConnect, which we’re launching in partnership with our friends at Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors and the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network, will address these financial challenges with a set of online tools, education and counseling – completely free for IAVA members. Veterans can receive free one-on-one credit counseling from a CredAbility certified counselor through the online program  or by calling 888.304.8372.
The program will cover five main issue areas: The Financial Impact of Deployment, Easing the Transition, Budget and Credit Counseling, Debt Management Plans and Foreclosure Prevention and Home Buying Guidance.
