Photo Release -- FELA Launches 'Debt Collection 101' Advice On LifeCents Website

PRA will promote the new modules to all consumers and customers from PRA's website. In addition, qualified PRA customers who complete the Debt Collection 101 modules on the LifeCents website will be able to settle their debt to PRA at a discount.

Upon completion of the three new LifeCents modules – Debt Collection 101, Savvy Saver 101, and Credit Score Health 101 – consumers will learn more about the effects of delinquent debt, can earn badges for the achievement of goals, and have the opportunity to redeem rewards related to their goal achievement.

Consumers who access LifeCents also will benefit from gaining a holistic view of their financial health, identifying relevant personal financial goals, and mitigating other risks to their financial wellbeing. The new LifeCents modules introduce a new, interactive approach to consumer engagement on delinquent debt as well as other applications in the financial services industry. FELA will assess consumer reaction to this innovative approach for PRA and evaluate a range of other metrics generated through ongoing use of the site.

"I am very encouraged that LifeCents is being used to help educate consumers about managing their debt while demonstrating new approaches to improve the dialogue between consumers and financial services companies," said FELA Chief Executive Officer and President Blake Allison. "The implications of helping people resolve their outstanding debt and helping them engage with financial service providers in new and productive ways are quite significant and compelling."
