American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) is a nonprofit agency that offers free credit counseling and low-cost financial services to consumers nationwide. Before consumers apply for debt settlement or make a debt settlement offer, our counselors can provide information about the pros and cons of settlement services and working with a debt settlement company. We can also discuss the advantages of bankruptcy vs settlement and consolidation and provide information about debt management as an alternative to credit card debt settlement. At ACCC, consumers can learn how to settle with credit card companies most successfully and explore a variety of options in addition to credit settlement. Our counselors can also answer questions like “What is a debt settlement program?” and “How does debt settlement affect your credit?”
