Guest post by Jason Holmes
If you are facing problems to manage your multiple bills, then you should go for credit counseling. It may happen that you’re experiencing difficulty in paying back your credit card bills along with your store charge card or gasoline cards. In such a situation, if you go for credit counseling, the agency can assess your financial situation and offer suitable suggestions to solve your debt problems. Go through this article to know how you can solve your debt problems with professional help.
By going for credit counseling
As already mentioned, when you contact a credit counseling agency, it assesses your financial situation and offers budgeting tips, which you can follow to manage your personal finances better. However, if you cannot manage your finances even after following the tips, then the counseling agency may ask you to go for debt management option.
When you enroll in a debt management program offered by the counseling agency, it will at first calculate how much you have to pay to your creditors. Then, according to your affordability, it will decide upon a monthly amount that you need to pay to the agency. The agency will also negotiate with your creditors to reduce the interest rates on your unsecured bills. It is also the duty of the counseling agency to get the monthly payment approved by the creditors. When you make the monthly payment, the agency will distribute the amount amongst your creditors as per the agreement with them.
Thus, you become debt free in a systematic way within a definite time period. Your stress also gets reduced as you don’t have to remember the due dates of multiple payments.
With the help of consolidation
Consolidation is somewhat similar to debt management in the sense that you can pay off your multiple debts by making single monthly payments. A consolidation program is also somewhat similar to a debt management program, only difference being that the former is offered by a consolidation company whereas the latter is usually offered by a counseling agency. However, there are also certain debt management companies which offer debt management plans/programs.
Apart from getting help from a consolidation company, you can also take out a consolidation loan to pay back your debts. It is similar to a personal loan that you can take out from a financial institution. Before taking out a loan, calculate how much you require to repay all your existing unsecured bills. Then, take out a loan of the required amount and pay back all your debts. In this way, you actually consolidate all your multiple monthly payments into a single one since you replace all your debts by a single consolidation loan.
While taking out a consolidation loan to pay back your unsecured bills, make sure you make the monthly payments on the new loan on time. This will ensure that you’ll repay the loan within the stipulated loan term. If required, cut down your expenses so that you can manage the loan comfortably.Jason Holmes is a regular writer with Debt Consolidation Care and is also a contributory writer with other financial sites.
