COVID-19 is causing financial hardship for many. We’re here to help.

For many Washingtonians who were recently laid off, had hours reduced, or took unpaid leave, the financial implications of COVID-19 have been serious and immediate. Added to that is the uncertainty about how long this public health crisis, and its related financial burdens, will continue to impact our community. 

Northwest Consumer Law Center is here to help those financially impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

How to survive the financial impacts of COVID-19

How to Get Out of Default on Your Student Loans

 Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 6 p.m.

Are you one of the millions of student loan borrowers in default on your student loans?

You still have options! While most federal student loan payments are in forbearance until December 31, if you're in default, start thinking about solutions to become current now--don't wait until forbearance expires.

Learn what options you have for bringing your loans into current standing and getting into an affordable repayment plan.

This FREE webinar will be live on Wednesday, October 21 at 6 p.m. with a presentation by Assistant Attorney General Kathleen Box, followed by a live Q&A.

Take the Risk out of the RISC (Retail Installment Sales Contract)

 Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at 6 p.m.

This upcoming webinar will focus on the Retail Installment Sales Contract (RISC), the sales contract used by dealerships when financing a vehicle purchase. Don’t get bogged down by the fine print when you’re sitting in the dealership’s financing office!

Check out our webinar where we’ll share tips and things to look out for on RISC contracts as well as non-financed, cash-only vehicle purchase contracts. Avoid the high-pressure sales tactics at the dealership by learning beforehand what’s negotiable and what’s non-negotiable and legally required.
