About Counseling Services

Credit counselors will be able to discuss your situation with your debt lenders to either forgive part of the debt or structure a repayment plan that fits your budget.

They will also work with you to establish a monthly repayment plan that fits your budget.

How the Program Works

You first complete an enrollment form that authorizes the credit counselor to discuss your situation.

The credit counselor will contact your creditors to negotiate a repayment plan that is significantly less than you currently pay — why? Creditors will welcome partial payment rather than no payment. Credit counselors will then setup a monthly repayment plan that works for you

You will then make your monthly payments to the credit counselor who in turns divides the payment among the creditors based on the negotiated repayment amount. In most cases, creditors will inactivate your credit cards to avoid charging additional debt.
