There’s no one right way to solve problems with credit card debt. Every financial situation is different, so the solution that what works for one credit user may not be the best choice for someone else. You need to understand all your options and compare them to find the best debt relief option for your needs and goals.
Minimum payments can keep you in debt for decades and interest charges can add up to more that you originally charged. Use our free credit card payoff calculator to see how long it will take you to pay off your debt with minimum payments.
Debt Relief Options
There are many debt relief options and two popular solutions are debt management programs and debt settlement plans. A common misconception is that they are the same thing.
But they are actually two very different types of solutions.
A debt management program, or DMP as it is commonly referred to, is the relief option where you pay back your principal in-full but your interest rates are reduced or even eliminated.
You only have one payment to make each month, instead of several. And your credit score stays intact and may even improve while on the program.
The key to a successful debt management program is that more money goes to eliminating the principal while high interest rate charges end.
In comparison, with a debt settlement program, you don’t pay back everything you owe.
A debt settlement specialist negotiates with your creditors with the goal of getting them to sign off on a settlement offer, where they agree to reduce your principal so you only pay a portion of the original amount.
Once they agree to the debt settlement, the creditor receives their money from what you set aside in a ‘program savings account’.
After you complete a debt settlement program, you will enjoy freedom from debt but it may take a few months to a few years to rebuild your credit rating, depending upon your unique situation.

Getting professional help is often the fastest, easiest and most cost-effective way to get out of credit card debt. There are two relief programs you can use: debt management and debt settlement. With a debt management program, you pay back everything you owe to avoid credit damage. Then you reduce or eliminates interest charges, so you can get out of debt faster, often with lower monthly payments. By contrast, debt settlement gets you out of debt for a percentage of what you owe. It’s usually the fastest, cheapest option to eliminate debt. However, it will cause some damage to your credit score.Compare Options
If you’re facing challenges with credit card debt, you’re not alone. The average household that uses credit cards owes over $15,000. In most states, credit users utilize more than 30% of their available credit, which leads to lower credit scores. Bad credit limits the number of options a consumer can use to find debt relief. So, the more debt you need to pay back, the less likely it is that you'll be able to use do-it-yourself solutions successfully.More Statistics

It is ultimately up to you to determine whether the companies that we may introduce you to are appropriate for your situation. For debt consolidation programs, where permissible by law, companies may charge a one-time enrollment fee typically from $25 up to $75 for account establishment and for debt relief proposals submitted on your behalf to each of your creditors. Monthly program administration fees will vary from $5 but no greater than $75 depending on your state of residence and/or the number of creditors who agree to accept proposals and become enrolled in the program. Fees subject to change if permissible by law. For debt settlement programs, by law, you may not be charged any fee until a debt settlement is arranged on your behalf, you approve the settlement, and at least one payment is made towards the settlement. Each program offered by independent financial service providers is unique so ask them for their complete details of the program and fees.
Not all consumers are able to complete debt relief programs for various reasons, including their ability to save sufficient funds. The use of debt resolution services could negatively impact your credit and may result in legal action on the part of creditors or collectors for unpaid balances. Consumers enrolled in debt consolidation programs who fail to adhere to the terms of their debt management plan (DMP) may forfeit the benefits of debt relief and revert to the terms of their original creditor agreements. Read and understand all program materials prior to enrollment. Please contact a debt relief specialist for complete program details.
