How does it work?
The Center uses a 3-part service approach:
|Earn it:||Increase Access to Work Supports & Benefits|
|Keep it:||Financial Coaching & Credit Improvement|
|Save it:||Building Assets toward Self-Sufficiency|
As a partner of The Benefit Bank® of North Carolina (TBB™-NC),United Way of Onslow County helps to connect low- and medium-income families and individuals to education and work supports, including tax credits, food and health benefits, and student financial aid. Trained counselors assist clients in completing benefit applications using the powerful online service called The Benefit Bank.
In addition to benefit access/enrollment and tax preparation, volunteer Financial Empowerment Coaches will work one-on-one with clients to create a customized plan to reduce debt, improve credit, and better manage their finances.
Want to utilize the Benefit Bank on your own?
