Consolidating Debts

ACCC's Program for Consolidating Debts

American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) has offered services for consolidating debts since 1991. Our debt management program has helped thousands of people like you with credit difficulties. You will work with a credit advisor who understands credit problems and helps you develop a plan to pay off your debts without borrowing any more money. Also during the program, you will receive money management education so that you can take control of your financial future.

The Benefits of Consolidating Debts through ACCC

Consolidating debts through ACCC has many advantages, in addition to our vast experience and knowledgeable counselors. Here are just a few of those benefits.

  • You make a payment directly to us each month, and we distribute the money to your creditors in the bill consolidation plan.
  • You save money from your consolidation of debt, because we work with your creditors to lower your interest charges and eliminate late fees and over-limit fees.
  • You can become debt-free faster. Our programs to consolidate credit are designed to get you out of debt within five years. This will depend on your particular circumstances.
  • You can receive ongoing financial counseling and education through our Recounseling Department.
  • You receive ACCC's Financial Peace of Mind Program, a self-study course with eight lessons and assessments that improves money management skills and increases financial awareness.
