How do I find a credit counselor?

Answer: Most credit counselors offer services through local offices, online, or on the telephone. You can find a list of approved credit counselors online.

Once you've developed a list of potential counseling agencies, check them out with your State Attorney General’s office, and local consumer protection agency. Finally, ask the counselors for free information about their services and what they provide.
