How to Schedule and Prepare for Your First Appointment
- Complete your intake on the Wayfynder portal and we will contact you to schedule an appointment with one of our financial counselors.
- Gather any pay stubs, bank account information, tax returns that might help you explain your finances and goals to your counselor.
- Attend your first session online. Your counselor can pull your credit for FREE and help you build a plan to tackle your financial goals.
- Then start working on the plan you made with the counselor and schedule a follow-up appointment to keep working toward that goal!
