Minn. CU first to sign with fin. counseling program
ST. PAUL, Minn. (9/4/12)--SouthPoint FCU in Sleepy Eye, Minn., is the first credit union to contract for financial counseling services through LSS Financial Counseling, since the organization formed a partnership with the Minnesota Credit Union Network's (MnCUN) Network Service Corp.

Through the partnership between MnCUN and LSS, Minnesota credit unions can offer members facing financial difficulties immediate access to financial counseling. Through LSS's Financial Choice, credit unions can provide education on money management skills, budget and debt counseling, debt management planning and foreclosure prevention counseling.

"Our alliance with LSS Financial Counseling helps to further differentiate credit unions as the smarter financial choice," said John Ferstl, MnCUN vice president, Network Service Corp. "LSS combines social responsibility with a cost-effective way to provide financial counseling services that equally benefit credit unions and their members."
