  • Next, we'll help you take the first step to get out of debt – developing a budget that you can live with. It will cover your expenses while setting aside a certain amount of money each month to pay off credit card debt and other unsecured debt.
  • We may also recommend a debt management plan, where all of your monthly debt payments are consolidated into one payment to ACCC, and we in turn make payments to creditors for you. A debt management plan is a great strategy for how to get out of debt fast – most of our clients are able to pay off their debt within five years. Because you have only one payment to make each month, you'll find it easier to stay current and make payments on time. The plan can also help you save thousands of dollars and pay off your loans faster, as we'll work with your creditors for possible reductions in finance charges, interest rates, late fees and over-limit charges.
