MADISON, Wis.-After beta-testing its "Debt in Focus" program for a year, the Filene Research Institute has re-launched the online financial assessment tool to improve its effectiveness and drive CU growth.

Debt in Focus is linked to via the CU's website, and a simple four-step program analyzes consumers' debt, income, and expenses, and then provides a report, including a financial action plan (Credit Union Journal, May 21, 2009). The resource has been retooled based on feedback from the 288 credit unions that participated in the pilot, and from consumers.
