Financial Counseling

Managing personal finances can be overwhelming—whether you’re just trying to pay monthly bills, set aside a little extra for emergencies or save for big things such as college and retirement. It’s stressful—but don’t worry. Help is available.

Magellan has partnered with a legal and financial counseling firm called CLC to offer free, unlimited telephone consultations with a financial counselor. They can provide advice on managing credit card debit, obtaining a loan, saving for college and much more.

To get help with financial planning or investing, your first in-person consultation with a local financial professional is free. Get follow-up consultations on a fee-per-transaction basis. CLC financial consultants include Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), registered investment representatives, banking professionals and former IRS agents and auditors.
