How to get rid of debt in three steps.

When you consult our credit counselors for help with getting rid of credit card debt, we will show you a three-step process for how to get rid of debt:

  • Evaluation. We'll perform a complete analysis of your financial situation, taking a look at your debts and expenses as well as your income and assets.
  • Budget. We'll help you to develop a budget that you can live with and one that lets you put aside some funds each month to pay down your debt.
  • Plan. Depending on your needs, we can show you how to get rid of debt through a debt management program tailored to your needs. A debt management plan can be an excellent strategy for how to pay down credit card debt without taking on a new loan.

How a debt management plan can help you get rid of debt.

In a debt management program from ACCC, you'll consolidate all the payments that you're making to creditors each month and instead make a single payment to ACCC. We'll disburse funds to your creditors on your behalf, working with them to secure possible reductions in interest rates, finance charges, late fees and over-limit fees. These reductions will save you money and help you get rid of debt more quickly. With just one payment to make each month, you'll find managing your finances to be much simpler and less stressful.

Our credit counselors can tell you much more about how our debt management program works and about other solutions for how to pay off credit cards and avoid debt.
