50,000 Consumers Nationwide Find Help With Credit When Credit Is Due Program

San Diego, CA - The Institute of Consumer Financial Education (ICFE), a San Diego based group is proud to celebrate the achievement of 50,000 consumers and professionals nationwide who have successfully completed the financial and credit education program, Credit When Credit is Due.  Credit When Credit is Due is a twelve lesson program targeted towards first time credit seekers and those individuals who may have abused their credit and now find themselves facing credit counseling, or worse yet, bankruptcy. In addition to consumers, Credit When Credit is Due is also recognized as a valuable training tool for credit, debt and other financial counselors and has been accepted for continuing education credits by a variety of national professional organizations.

Nationwide, over 50,000 people have completed the program. Those graduates are entitled to a number of benefits as their reward for investing in such comprehensive credit education, because each graduate had to pass an examination at the end of each of the twelve lessons. Among the benefits are notifications prepared for the consumer to send to the three major credit reporting agencies of their recent accomplishment for inclusion in their credit files, a variety of discounts and reduced rates from mortgage companies, real estate brokers, offers of deposit waivers from participating telephone and utility companies and special opportunities for members of participating credit unions.

 

About the ICFE:

The Institute of Consumer Financial Education (ICFE) was founded in 1982 by the late Loren Dunton (creator of the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation).  The ICFE is dedicated to helping consumers of all ages to improve their spending, increase savings and use credit more wisely.

It publishes the Do-It-Yourself Credit File correction Guide, which is updated annually. The ICFE has distributed over one million Credit/Debit Card Warning Labels and Credit/Debit Card Sleeves world wide.

The ICFE became an official partner with the Department of Defense/Financial Readiness Campaign in June of 2004.The ICFE was an active partner in the California Student Debt Resource Awareness Project (CASDRAP) which resulted in a new web site: (studentdebthelp.org).  CASDRAP disbanded in 2010, shortly after the web site project was completed.  In 2011 the ICFE assumed the single sponsorship of the (studentdebthelp.org) web site and is now responsible for its content and operation.

The ICFE is also an on-line help for consumers who spend too much.  ICFE's spending help was featured in PARADE Magazine in the Intelligence Report section. The money helps and tips are from the ICFE's Money Instruction Book, our course in personal finance.
