Consumer Debt

Get relief from consumer debt.

After the recent financial crisis, many individuals and families have found themselves with more consumer debt than they can handle. From credit cards or department store cards to credit lines and unsecured personal loans, high levels of consumer debt can quickly become overwhelming. Many people with significant consumer debt feel as though they'll never get out of debt, and that they have to work longer and harder just to keep up with payments.

If you're concerned about consumer debt or can't keep up with the payments on money you owe, a debt management program or debt and bill consolidation with American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) may be the answer. We're a non-profit organization dedicated to credit card debt relief and providing solutions for getting rid of debt. Our programs are effective and deliver results that you can rely on. Working with a credit counselor from ACCC, you can take control of your finances and make a plan to live a debt-free future.

Debt relief begins with evaluating your financial picture and consumer debt.

When you come to ACCC for help with your consumer debt, our credit counselors will take a look at your entire financial situation.

ACCC's debt management program consolidates all your unsecured debts, enabling you to make a single monthly payment and simplifying your personal finances.

ACCC counselors can also work with your creditors for a possible reduction in late fees, finance charges, monthly payments and other fees, as well as the time it takes to pay off your consumer debt. And we'll help you create a budget to manage your finances and debt, and work with you to create a plan that will help you live debt-free in the future.
