Why do so many people need relief from credit card debt?

We talk to thousands of people every year who find themselves struggling to get out of credit card debt. The reasons can range from poor money management skills to a lack of financial literacy to just simply charging more than they can afford to pay off. It’s true; credit cards are great to have for an emergency if you lack savings. Let’s say your hot water heater breaks and you don’t have the money in savings to pay for a new one. You need hot water, so buying an item like this on a credit card may be the only way some of us could make that purchase.

However, many of us simply use credit cards inappropriately, or we don’t understand how easy it is to get behind. We’ve found that the one of the factors that contributes to credit card debt is that people don’t understand how minimum monthly payments work. Think about this: You make a $1,000 purchase on your credit card that charges an 18% annual percentage rate (APR). Your minimum monthly payment on this expense would only be about $25, depending on how your bank calculates the minimum payment. But if you were to make just the minimum monthly payment on this expense, it would take you about 113 months to pay this balance in full…a little under a decade!

How does a debt relief company help me get out of credit card debt?

There are plenty of debt relief options out there for people trying to get out of credit card debt, but debt consolidation from a non-profit agency is still the least expensive and most effective option to safely and responsibly pay down your debt. In the above example, we know that it will take close to 10 years to pay off a $1,000 purchase making the minimum monthly payment. Through our debt relief program, you can have this same balance paid off in just about 50 months…a little over 4 years! It may sound too good to be true, but it’s a fact. Plus, there are other benefits to using a program like ours to pay off your credit card debt. Throughout their enrollment, our typical clients also save an average of 25% on their monthly payments! So it can actually cost you LESS to pay off your debt while still doing so in about 4 years. Here’s how:

When you work with a non-profit debt relief agency like Cambridge, you’ll be eligible for a variety of benefits that have been established through our relationship with your credit card company. Almost every major bank will offer some level of benefit for consumers who enroll in our program. These benefits usually include:

Interest rate reductions: On average, on their own, our typical clients are paying about 22% as an annual percentage rate on their credit cards. Through our program, creditors will reduce this interest rate to an average of 8%, which is a 64% reduction! Now, there will be a lot more of your monthly payment going toward paying off the actual balance instead of going toward paying the interest. This is how we are usually able to reduce your monthly payment while getting you out of debt faster than you could on your own.

Elimination of fees: Another great benefit of our debt relief program is the elimination of certain late and/or over-limit fees that you may have incurred. Some creditors will eliminate some of these fees which will lower your total balance, making it even quicker for you to get out of debt.

Re-Aging Past Due Accounts: If your account is being reported as past-due on your credit report, this could have a dramatic negative affect on your credit score. As a result of your enrollment with Cambridge, some creditors will start reporting your account as being current.
