The coronavirus pandemic put millions of Americans in financial turmoil due to lost income. Many lenders have offered forbearance options, but what happens when they end? If you were allowed to delay payments to your creditors those grace periods won’t last forever and some may have already ended. Today, host Rob West explores how to prepare with Neile Simon of Christian Credit Counselors. Neile Simon is the director of Strategic Partnerships at Christian Credit Counselors, where they’ve been helping people cope with the devastating financial impact of COVID-19. Then it’s your calls and questions at 800-525-7000.


•          Neile gives her view of what she has seen on the “front lines” of the battle against the financial implications of the pandemic. 

•          They discuss forbearance programs and how they have been helping people all over the country, however most mortgage forbearance programs only last 3 months, credit card companies grace periods on minimum payments and late fees have ranged from 1-3 months. Student Loan forbearance programs will end September 31st.

•          Neile offers advice on what people should do if they think their forbearance is ending. She talks about overhauling your budget, determine if you can make minimum payments, and if you still need help, reach out to Christian Credit Counselors.

•          She offers wisdom on how Christian Credit Counselors can help people who are overwhelmed by debt and explains how their program works. 

•          She also explains what clients can expect when they sign up and why their approach is much better than choosing debt consolidation.
