    Frequently Asked Questions

    There are four main qualifications for the EmpowerMe Financial Program:

    • Have a direct deposit to your account at Astera CU
    • Have internet access to be able to access the Money EDU program
    • You are willing to sign a commitment form so you are as committed as your coach
    • You have the time to put into doing the tasks asked each week

    There are a multitude of factors that contribute to your credit score and each person will come into the program with their own unique financial history as a starting point. While we cannot guarantee a specific score upon completion of Empower Me, what we can promise is that by participating in the program you are giving yourself a chance to make a profound impact on your total financial wellbeing.  By learning about topics like credit and how to manage your money in conjunction with working with our coaches you will put yourself in a position to see positive gains to your credit score!

    The program is designed to last about 12 months. We feel that this is the necessary timeframe to help build and reinforce positive money habits with your coach as well as this gives your credit score a chance to increase. That being said, you and your coach may decide after 12 months that there are still goals you are working towards and you would like to keep working together so the length of time can be tailored to meet your specific financial situation.

    The EmpowerMe is completely free. There are a few requirements that must be met to stay in the program, but there is no cost to the member when joining into the EmpowerMe Financial Program.
