Balance Financial Counseling

BALANCE your finances... for free!

Pittsford Credit Union provides yet more value to your membership with our BALANCE program. We want to help you achieve your financial goals, whether that means getting out of debt, sending the kids to college, buying your first home, or retiring. That's why one benefit of Pittsford FCU membership is access to personal finance information and counseling six days a week. And it's free!

Through BALANCE, members will receive unbiased information and assistance. To use these services, simply call, toll-free, 1-888-456-2227. Counselors are available Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (EST), Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. In many cases BALANCE counselors can answer your questions immediately. If you're wondering how long something stays on your credit report or whether it's better to lease or buy a car, you'll get the answers as soon as you call. For those with more complex issues, like debt problems or budget issues, an appointment will be scheduled allowing enough time to go over your budget and discuss options. You can even prepare your budget information ahead of time.

If bill payments are an issue, simply reworking your current budget is not enough to help you get back on track. Your counselor may be able to arrange a Debt Management Plan and negotiate with creditors to reduce payments, interest charges and fees as you work toward paying off your debt. Pittsford FCU understands that personal finance affects all of us every day. Fortunately, every one can achieve financial fitness with determination and a little professional guidance. Through this benefit of membership, we're helping you to get ahead financially.
