Four easy steps for getting rid of debt.
Getting rid of debt is a pretty straightforward process. When you come to ACCC for help with debts, our credit counselors will work you to:
- Assess your situation, getting a picture of your entire financial picture including your income, expenses and debt. Then we'll work with you to make a plan for how to eliminate debt.
- Make a budget that you can live with for the next few years that will allow you to pay off your debts more quickly – usually within five years – and live without debt in the future.
- Consolidate your debts so you can make a single payment to ACCC each month and let us make disbursements to your creditors. Simplifying your debt payments through consolidation helps to reduce the stress of owing money and makes it easier to stay current with your payments.
- Lower your payments. Our counselors will work with your creditors for possible reductions in interest rates, late charges, over-limit fees and the time to pay off your debt.
