What kind of free debt advice does ACCC offer?

What does a credit counselor do when it comes to offering free advice? When you schedule a consultation for free debt advice with one of our credit counselors, we’ll first help you get a complete picture of your financial situation. Then we’ll provide you with personalized options to help pay down your debt and improve your credit. Depending on your financial goals, these may include social service referrals, educational materials or a debt management plan. At the end of your free debt advice session, you’ll have a clear sense of where you stand and for the options available to you to pay down your debt.

American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) offers consumer credit solutions ranging from debt counseling and debt consolidation relief, to pre-bankruptcy counseling and post-bankruptcy debtor education. If you are seeking debt consolidation options, ACCC offers a simple and effective consolidation program that's more prudent and beneficial than a debt settlement solution or taking out loans for debt consolidation.
