Settling Credit Card Debt
Avoid damaging your credit score - choose the right agency for settling credit card debt.
Settling credit card debt through a debt settlement agency is an attractive option for anyone with too much credit card debt. But if you choose the wrong agency for settling credit card debt, you could find yourself deeper in debt and end up damaging your credit score. Many companies offering solutions for settling credit card debt are less than honorable in their intentions – they may ask you for fees up front, charge enormous amounts for their services or fail to tell you about the risks to your credit score.

We are a non-profit organization devoted to showing individuals and families how to pay down debt and live life debt-free.

How settling credit card debt with ACCC works.
One of the most effective ways of settling credit card debt is through a debt management plan from ACCC, which offers very low fees and will not harm your credit score in the long run. This is the program we usually recommend when a client wants to know how to get out of debt fast. Under a debt management plan, our counselors will show you how to get rid of credit card debt by developing a budget you can live with while paying down your debt a little each month. Next, will consolidate your monthly payments to all your creditors – you'll make one payment to us and we'll write checks to everybody on your behalf. This makes your finances simpler and helps you keep current with your monthly debt payment. We'll also work for possible reductions in interest rates and finance charges on your debt. This reduces the amount you owe and helps to pay it off more quickly – most of our clients can eliminate their debt within five years.
