Pro bono planning involves unique challenges. Many aspects of client situations will be unfamiliar to planners, such as delinquent debt, use of predatory lenders such as payday loans, incarceration and parole, as well as eligibility for income- and asset-based government benefits and other services. Planners faced with these client situations need a “go-to” list of reliable information sources such as the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, legal aid agencies, Cooperative Extension, and others.
