How to pay off a credit card with a debt management program.

Here’s how ACCC’s debt management plan works:

  • Consolidating payments. Rather than making payments to multiple credit card companies each month, you’ll make just one payment to ACCC and we’ll write all the checks to your creditors for you. This enables you to simplify your finances, keep up with payments more easily and reduce the stress of managing credit card debt.
  • Reducing fees and charges. When we begin making payments to your creditors, we’ll also seek to get reductions in interest rates, finance charges and fees for late payment or being over your credit limit. Negotiating credit card debt in this way can help you save a lot of money and pay off a credit card more quickly.
