“Anyone who is interested in learning about debt is encouraged to attend,” said Kathy Murray, Purdue Extension educator, Tippecanoe County. “In this time of financial hardship, we understand that it can be harder than normal to climb out of debt. This workshop will teach participants ways to help those around them deal with debt and also how to deal with their own debts, should they have any.”

Some of the covered topics will include self-help, credit counseling, debt management plans, debt consolidation, bankruptcy, debt negotiation programs and judgment-proof plans.

“When it comes time to think about credit counseling, some resources may be more helpful in certain instances than others,” Murray said. “We want to give participants the tools to help themselves and others make informed decisions when it comes to dealing with debt. We will have a panel of experts, including attorneys, on hand to talk about debt management.”

Identifying Resources for Dealing with Debt Management is sponsored by the Tippecanoe Area Economic Education Coalition, with resources and speakers provided by Purdue University Extension, Purdue Employees Federal Credit Union, Family Services Inc. and Lafayette Area Resource Academy.

The workshop is free and open to the public. No registration is required. For more information, contact Murray at 765-474-5330, murrayk@purdue.edu.
