Student Loan Default Help

Do you need student loan default help?

When you’re dealing with defaulted students loans, you can find student loan default help at American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC). We’re a nonprofit organization providing free credit counseling to help people regain control of their finances and make a plan to get out of debt.

Defaulting on student loans brings serious financial consequences. You are generally considered in default if you have not made a student loan payment in 270 days, or about nine months. When you are in default, the entire amount of your loan will be due and payable immediately, and your lender may sue you in court to recover the money. Your wages may be garnished and your credit will be damaged, making it difficult to rent an apartment, get a credit card or buy a car.

At ACCC, our professional credit counselors provide student loan default help and assistance in finding student loan relief. Contact us today for a free credit counseling session to learn more about the types of student loan default help we offer.

If you are not yet in default, we can provide help with options for private, state and federal student loan relief to avoid defaulting on loans.
