Paying off Debt
Need help paying off debt?
If you find yourself owing a lot of money, paying off debt is probably a high priority. As you're considering how to pay off debts, you will likely come across many options – from balance transfer offers to debt consolidation loans to debt settlement services. As you're deciding which method of paying off debt is right for you, remember that many of these solutions are costly and may actually cause you to take on more debt. Other solutions may damage your credit score, making it hard to qualify for loans or mortgages in the future.
Fortunately there are better, more affordable alternatives for paying off debt – like American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC). We're a non-profit organization that provides help to thousands of people each year. Our credit counselors can discuss all of your options for paying off debt, and help you understand how to reduce credit card debt most effectively. Contact us today to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation and take the first step toward paying off your debt.
ACCC: proven strategies for paying off debt.
As a nonprofit organization, ACCC offers free credit counseling and very low rates for services and advice on paying off debt. Our credit counselors are professionally trained and independently certified, and they're experts at strategies for settling credit card debt and at teaching clients how to manage debt.
When our clients want to know how to get out of debt quickly, we usually recommend a debt management plan – an excellent solution for paying off debt within five years, in most cases. Under this arrangement, our counselors will help you get a complete picture of your finances and assist you in developing a budget that will enable you to pay off your debt over time. Then we'll consolidate all the monthly payments you're making to creditors into one payment to ACCC – we'll pay each of your creditors on your behalf. With just one payment each month, you'll find it easier to keep up with your debts and you'll feel a lot less stress about owing money. As we're paying your creditors, we'll also work with them on possible reductions in the interest rates and finance charges on the money you owe as well as elimination of late fees and over-limit fees. This saves you money that helps you pay off your debt more quickly.

- Save money with lower fees.
