Oppose legislation to permit for-profit credit repair, debt settlement and earned wage advance services in Georgia

Georgia’s current laws protect consumers from abusive fees often charged by these services.

Current Georgia Legislation

  • Senator Matt Brass (R-28) introduced Senate Bill 254 to authorize earned wage access (EWA) providers to operate in the state, avoiding characterization as a loan. This loosens consumer protections and makes EWA services practically indistinguishable from payday lending, which is illegal in Georgia.
