Affordable solutions for how to pay off debts.

When you get help with debts from ACCC, our professional credit counselors are experts at analyzing your financial picture and making a plan for how to pay off debts. In your first conversation your counselor will perform an evaluation of your financial status – what you owe and how much your income and expenses are each month. Then you'll work with your counselor to create a budget that you can live with while getting rid of debt.

Depending on your financial evaluation, your counselor may suggest a debt management or debt reduction program. This plan for how to pay off debts involves consolidating credit cards, personal loans and other unsecured debts into a single amount, so you can make one payment each month instead of many payments to your creditors. By simplifying your debt through consolidation, you make it easier to keep up with payments, and it can help reduce the stress of owing money.

We'll also work with your creditors for possible reductions in interest rates, late fees, over-the-limit charges and the time it will take to pay off debts, helping to save you money and pay off your debts faster.
