Reverse Mortgage Counseling Need more income in your golden years? A reverse mortgage may be the answer.

Making ends meet can be a real challenge for you as a senior citizen. If you are a homeowner who has reached age 62 or older, the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) – FHA’s Reverse Mortgage – may allow the use of your home’s equity as a source of income without adding to your monthly debt. In fact, you can use your HECM loan for anything you choose without having to repay your mortgage until the house is sold. Lenders determine whether you qualify for a HECM. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) requires that you attend a counseling session before you apply for a HECM loan. CCCS of Rochester provides the consumer credit counseling required by the FHA, and we will make sure that you understand all of the reverse mortgage pros and cons.

Student Loan Counseling

As college students and graduates, we strive for the best. We get a higher education to create a more successful and prosperous life for ourselves. Unfortunately, many struggles to find jobs and make a living wage. One out of three graduates faces difficulties with repaying student loan debt.

If you’re struggling to make payments on your student debt, we can help!

CCCS of Rochester can help make the dream of becoming debt free come true. When you enroll in one of our debt management programs, we provide you with debt consolidation services. We take all of your debts and combine them into one affordable monthly payment.
