Veterans Credit Repair Initiative

Canada Credit Cares launches its latest charitable initiative today. Offering CAF veterans special discounts for its veterans credit repair and credit score rebuilding services. This new drive to help CAF veterans waives setup fees as well as automatically approves veterans for program membership. Helping Canada’s peacekeeping veterans is part of Canada Credit Cares’ drive to help. Canada Credit Cares recognizes the sacrifices veterans make in their lives in order to serve their country.

Veteran Hardships

It is not uncommon to hear stories about financial hardships for Canadian veterans. The National Defence and Canadian Forces Ombudsman released a report in 2013. It was titled “On the Homefront: Assessing the Well-being of Canada’s Military Families in the New Millennium.”
In the report, key issues were identified as contributing to financial hardships for Canadian forces families. These issues included separation and hardship caused by overseas deployments. Employment issues for families due to geographical relocation were also mentioned. Other obstacles included off-base housing costs, suitable housing, accessing social benefits and health care and raising families.

Veterans wounded in the line of duty have to handle a variety of issues. This includes health care costs, loss of employment and insufficient benefits to handle financial hardship. Not to mention the physical and psychological effects of their wounds. These issues have become more pronounced since Canada’s deployment to Afghanistan and the effects are not exclusively physical. It is not uncommon to hear about veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression both during and after deployment. Difficulties in acquiring proper treatment and sufficient benefits to cover costs compound these issues.

Financial Struggles

Canadian forces members are proud of their service and receive more support than in the past. But, there are veterans and serving CAF members that fall under financial hardships. This can be due to the rigors and trials of military life and post military civilian life. Under these conditions it’s difficult to maintain a positive financial record and credit score. Hence the need for veterans credit repair. These problems are compounded when extended to their spouses. Whom also have to share in the burdens involved with military life. Relocation, loss of work, injury, delays in benefits and difficulty finding gainful, stable employment result in late payments. These can affect their credit reports, dragging down a healthy Equifax and Transunion credit score and rating.

Canada Credit and Canada Credit Fix; Here to Help

Canada Credit and Canada Credit Fix CEO Sheldon Wolf extended an offer to waive the veterans credit repair setup fees. This is for the Canada Credit, Canada Credit Fix, and Credit Advise programs. These are available to all CAF members and veterans. Veterans are granted automatic approval to these programs just for applying. It is Canada Credit Cares’ way of contributing to the well-being of all past and present members of the CAF. Acknowledging their sacrifice and the financial issues facing hard working and loyal armed forces personnel. Wolf has also announced that in some cases his firm will be offering veterans credit repair restoration pro-bono. This is to help veterans acquire the accurate credit that they deserve.

Sheldon Wolf wants to give back to our veterans and armed forces personnel. Their loyalty, hard work and service to their country is incredible. Current and past members of the armed forces will also receive automatic approval for veterans credit repair. And credit improvement programs through Canada Credit Cares. The armed forces lifestyle includes sacrifices and hardship. But, it should not come at the expense of their financial record. Armed forces members both past and present deserve financial solvency like anyone else.
