BALANCE Financial Counseling
When you come to a fork in the road, get help choosing the right direction.
Trailhead Credit Union is dedicated to helping you realize your financial goals – reducing your debt, saving for higher education, buying your first home, or planning for retirement. That’s why we have partnered with BALANCE, a financial fitness program that provides information to help you achieve your goals.
As a Trailhead Credit Union member, you have access to FREE, confidential financial information and advice six days a week.
BALANCE counselors can answer a wide variety of financial questions – from how long an item stays on your credit report to whether it’s better to lease or buy a car. Visit InfoLine
