MMI announces name change to local CCCS branch offices

August 03, 2010

Commitment to providing financial education remains unchanged

Money Management International announced today that it is aligning all of its Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCCS) branch locations under one name. Unifying all 120 branch office locations under one name, Money Management International (MMI), will allow the nation's largest consumer credit counseling agency to better serve its customers while operating under a name that better represents the variety of programs and services MMI offers.

Since 1958, many of MMI’s local branch offices have operated under the CCCS name. However, CCCS has become a broad term and is used by many other agencies across the country; often causing confusion as to which local CCCS agencies are a part of the MMI family. The name change will also support MMI’s growing presence in the community and broaden the awareness of service offerings beyond traditional credit counseling to areas such as housing assistance; reverse mortgage counseling; and bankruptcy counseling and education.

“Though the name will change, the high-quality service and meaningful financial education we provide everyday remains the same,” says Ivan Hand, President and CEO for MMI. “Education is still our primary focus and our counselors and employees are committed to providing clients with the resources, tools, and information they need to secure a healthy financial future.”

The transition from CCCS to MMI is currently underway and is slated for full completion by the end of the year. For more information about MMI, including the name change and the programs and services provided by the organization, visit

MMI suggests finance options for obtaining a higher education According to a recent report released by the U.S. Secretary of Education, student loan default rates are up a staggering 7 percent, up from the 2007 default rate of 6.7 percent. The default rates for student borrowers are considerably higher for those who attended public schools than those who attended private ones. Due to a lackluster economic turnaround and high unemployment, it’s no surprise that student borrowers are struggling to make loan payments.
