Debt management: the best credit card debt advice we can offer.

When our clients want to get rid of their personal credit card debt, the advice we give them most frequently is to enroll in a debt management plan. This involves consolidating your monthly payments into a single payment made each month to ACCC. We then take that money and make payments on your behalf to your creditors. That means you have just one payment to worry about each month, making it easy to stay current on accounts. And because we have a direct relationship with your creditors, we can ask them to lower your interest rates, reduce your finance charges, and remove over-limit and late fees. This way you'll be able to lower credit card debt and pay off all your loans more quickly – typically within five years.
