The Road to Financial Empowerment

How a student loan “ruined my life.” Milly is a comedian and writer living in Brooklyn with an exciting and promising career ahead of her. But, as is the case for many of the country’s 45 million student loan borrowers, she remains burdened and overwhelmed by school debt, in particular a private student loan….

As a financial coach, and as an optimist, I have a confession: I love New Year’s resolutions. I love talking about mine and asking other people about theirs. I love tracking mine all the way into December whether or not I consider them successes (2020 was… a mixed bag).

PerkUp President Benjamin Allen

TrustPlus spoke with PerkUp Financial Health president Benjamin Allen about bringing cash assistance and personal finance coaching to low-income hospitality workers in New Orleans. Ben suggests the industry may not rebound until 2022 and is working with public and private partners to support workers until tourism bounces back.
