DENVER (6/23/10)--Mortgage benefits programs are not as common as retirement or healthcare programs, but there are companies that can help employers--including credit unions--offer their employees homeowner education. LenderLive Network recently introduced its iBenefits Plus plan, which it says aims to build employee loyalty through homeowner education and mortgage counseling services. iBenefits Plus is available through a privately labeled Website that offers advisory tools--such as informational opportunities to professional debt analysis--that can help employees with homeownership decision making. Up to 42% of individuals’ income is allocated for household expenses, according to a study LenderLive cited. “When employees are empowered to appropriately address their financial concerns, it boosts their morale, productivity and sustainability,” said Rick Seehausen, president/CEO. LenderLive noted that through iBenefits, employers can align employees to a preferred lender of their choosing--which could be the employer’s credit union. LenderLive Network Inc., Denver, is a provider of business process outsourcing and technology for the financial industry.
