Credit card debt elimination
Where to find help with credit card debt elimination.
Credit card debt elimination is an important part of a secure financial future. Too much credit card debt may prevent you from qualifying for a mortgage, from getting an apartment rental, or from securing a car loan. And it can make it hard to save for college, retirement, or things you want to buy in the future.
But dealing with credit card debt can be tough to manage on your own, especially if you owe a lot of money to a lot of different credit card companies. When you need credit card debt advice and help with credit card debt elimination, American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) can help.

Credit card debt elimination in four steps.
Depending on your financial situation, our counselors may recommend a debt reduction plan, better known as a debt management plan, as the best way to achieve credit card debt elimination. A debt management plan involves four steps:
- Evaluation. Our counselors will speak with you to get a clear picture of your financial situation and make a credit card debt elimination plan.
- Budgeting. We'll help you establish a budget that you can live with while you work on credit card debt elimination.
- Consolidation. We'll consolidate all of your payments to credit card companies into a single payment to ACCC. You'll make just one payment each month to us, and we'll pay the credit card companies for you. This makes it much easier to keep up with your payments – and it's a lot less stressful, too.
- Reductions. We'll approach your creditors to ask for reductions in interest rates, finance charges, and other fees. This helps to reduce the amount you owe and lets you pay it off faster.
With a debt management plan, most of our clients are able to achieve credit card debt elimination within five years. As opposed to a credit card debt settlement arrangement, a debt management plan will not damage your credit rating in the long run.
