Who Should Use a Debt Management Plan for Consolidating Bills?
Consolidating bills through a debt management plan is the first step toward relief from a growing mountain of unsecured debt. While no one wants to face financial hardship, it can happen to anyone for unexpected reasons like illness, death, a work-related injury, or an accident. And sometimes it happens because of unwise credit decisions.
So, simply put, anyone can use a debt management plan for consolidating bills. These consolidated debt programs can alleviate the stress of making multiple monthly payments on time. Debt management programs also help you pay off your debt without incurring more debt from a credit consolidation loan and typically quicker than you would when paying down your debt on your own.
When Should I Start Consolidating Bills?
You should talk to a credit counselor about consolidating bills if you are feeling overwhelmed by your debt. You may be worried about where the money is going to come from to pay your next bill, or you are no longer making on-time payments to your creditor or are not making payments at all. The longer you delay finding consumer debt solutions to your problem, the worse your situation becomes. If you don't take effective action, interest rates will rise, late fees will pile up, and your credit rating will drop.
