Help for people in debt

Getting help for people in debt

There are many companies offering to provide help for people in debt. From debt settlement agencies to firms advertising personal debt consolidation loan options. There seems to be no shortage of businesses determined to offer help for people in debt.

The trouble is, most of these are for-profit companies, which means their primary interest is on their bottom line rather than yours. And while there are many legitimate firms providing real help with debt problems, there are plenty of scams out there as well. Therefore, if you want advice about your financial situation, it's best that you find a nonprofit company that provides help for people in debt.

ACCC provides help for people in debt.

American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) has been providing help for people in debt for over two decades. As a nonprofit organization, we provide free credit counseling sessions with certified credit counselors over the phone and in person. When you reach out to ACCC, we'll work with you to help you clearly understand your financial situation and choose the option for paying down your debt that makes the most sense for your financial goals. We'll share free educational materials with you to help you enhance your knowledge on managing your personal finances. And we can answer your questions about debt, such as "What is my debt to income ratio?" and "How can I get out of debt more quickly?"

Help for people in debt offered by ACCC also includes low-cost debt management services. Under a debt management plan, you can make just one payment per month to ACCC and we will take responsibility for paying each of your creditors on time. A debt management plan not only simplifies your finances and reduces the stress of owing money, but it allows us to work with your creditors to reduce interest rates as well as finance charges and other fees, enabling you to reduce the amount you owe and pay off debt faster.
