The truth is that having any debt means you are financially beholden to a creditor and you can’t put your money in your own pocket until your obligation is met.
If you are a careful money manager who fell into debt because of unusual circumstances (medical or veterinary bill, loss of employment or some other emergency) and NOT because you spent more on your credit cards than you could afford to pay off each month, then leave the accounts open.
A company will manage the plan and negotiate some cost reductions with your creditors, such as waived fees or a lower interest rate.
You’ll make a single payment to the plan manager, who will distribute the funds to your creditors.
It’s a great tool to see just how many years it takes to pay off debt, especially high interest credit card debt on which you make a small minimum monthly payment.
You can get rid of credit card debt in several different ways. You can also take out a home equity loan (or a cash-out refinance) from your mortgage lender, or you can open a new credit card and transfer the balances over.
