Debt Consolidation Can Save Residents in Fort Worth, Tx Thousands

The city of Fort Worth, TX has benefited as part of a state that has prided itself on being aware of the economic needs of its residents. In 2001, Texas envisioned a way to increase the financial capability within Texas households through linking and improving Individual Account Programs across the state. After a few years spent refining its plan, the state was able to launch a network of resources. With the help of financial education programs, events, and other tools, Fort Worthians have been well supported in working towards financial health.

Several positive factors contribute to the overall status of well being in Fort Worth. The city’s wages and salaries, for example, fall just behind that of Dallas’, which are some of the highest in the area. Fort Worthians are happily unaffected by this difference, however, because of the lower cost of living they enjoy. Research also reports that while job growth has waxed and waned this last year, overall the area has expanded by 5,000 jobs. So it would seem all is well in Cowtown.

What this sunny big picture fails to tell is the recent and unfortunate job loss of 3,200 individuals who may now be in financial hardship. Additionally, while Fort Worth’s median income seems quite competitive with that of Dallas, many of these households are sustained by not one, but two incomes. For these households, the high costs of childcare have been a handicap. The most burdensome stumbling block facing Fort Worth, however, is the average amount of credit card debt accumulated by the majority of households and continues to increase every year. Comparing reported debt averages for 2015 and today’s statistics reveals that the amount of debt has almost doubled in just two years!

If you have begun to worry about the amount of debt you have, or think you could be managing your money better, a credit counseling consultation can provide you with the help you need. Our representatives can help you learn about spending money more wisely, building a household budget, debt consolidation and other tools that can lead you to the debt relief you desire. Once you’ve enlisted our help, your only worry will be running into the Goatman at Lake Worth.
