United States Coast Guard - Coast Guard Mutual Assistance: Debt Management and Financial Counseling ProgramCoast Guard Mutual Assistance (CGMA) provides essential financial aid to the entire Coast Guard family, chiefly through financial counseling, short-term interest-free loans, financial grants, referrals, and other related means. Debt Management assistance is intended to help our clients become good financial managers of their income. To become good financial managers, they must first be able to meet their financial obligations. Sacrifice and austerity on the part of the client is essential. Debt Management assistance does not aim to return an insolvent person to an absolutely normal way of life. Debt Management does assist by helping to create the minimum essential financial condition to allow the person to live frugally while paying off obligations in a responsible manner. Debt Management assistance generates sufficient cash flow to permit a livable budget, repayment of debt, and the provision for modest savings to meet future needs. Total debt consolidation loans are not authorized. Examples of Authorized Debt Management and Financial Counseling Assistance:
  • Professional, confidential, financial planning and counseling. Available to all CGMA clients. Applying for a loan or grant from CGMA is not required to receive counseling,
  • Assistance when faced with exceptional financial circumstances and unable to receive financial assistance from commercial institutions.
