The history of MMI is a story of perpetual
transformation. With roots that extend all the way
back to 1958, MMI has been shaped and reshaped
over the years in response to the changing needs of
consumers and creditors alike.
In 1997, the nonprofit
Money Management by Mail was formed through
the alignment of six consumer credit counseling
agencies seeking to more effectively leverage their
decades of combined experience and expertise.
Money Management by Mail quickly became an
industry forerunner, both in terms of consumer reach
and technological capacity. In 2003, the organization
was rebranded as Money Management International
to more accurately reflect the scope of its operations.
MMI has continued to expand throughout the
years by joining forces with credit counseling
agencies across the country. This
expansion has made MMI the largest full service
nonprofit consumer credit counseling organization
in the nation, offering a wide variety of financial
counseling and educational services, including debt
and budget counseling, student loan counseling,
foreclosure counseling, bankruptcy education and
organizational financial wellness programs, and
much, much more.
