During the uncertain economic times brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, you may find yourself becoming worried about your family’s financial stability. Wouldn’t it be great if you could turn to an impartial expert for advice? With King County’s My Secure Advantage (MSA) program, you can receive personalized advice from a professional Money Coach for free.
What is a Money Coach?
A Money Coach is a trained professional who works with you one-on-one to assess your current financial situation and help you take concrete steps to improve it. Money Coaches have certifications in financial planning, taxes, and credit counseling. They can help with a wide variety of situations, including establishing or adjusting your budget, advising on mortgage and loan deferrals, or investing. The MSA Money Coaches are paid a salary; they will not charge you any fees and they won’t try to sell you anything.
Counseling sessions are phone-based and usually about 30 minutes long. Money Coaches are available for appointments Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. On average, you will work with a Money Coach for seven to 14 sessions, depending on your needs
How to register
King County employees are eligible for 90 days of free, confidential, telephone-based coaching. Spouses and partners are welcome to participate on the coaching calls.
Because all MSA programming is delivered online or over-the phone, it is available without change during the coronavirus response. MSA does ask that you register online during this time if possible, instead of calling to register. Click here for more information on Money Coaches and MSA’s other educational resources.
