How Debt Settlement Works The 5 Easy Steps of How Debt Settlement Works
Step 1 Work with a debt counselor to find the most affordable way to pay off unsecured debt accounts Gather all credit card and/or loan statements for interest rate and current fee review Let debt counselor assess the true payoff time if no assistance was needed If new program terms make sense, debt counselor will assist in completing the proper enrollment documentation needed
Step 2 A savings/escrow account will be open in the sole name of the client Money will be placed into this account on a monthly basis until enough money has been saved to payoff individual accounts Monthly statements will be sent to savings account owner every month just as a normal savings account would do Funds are FDIC insured
Step 3 Debt settlement company will negotiate on your behalf with each of your creditors Company will negotiate with your savings account only if a reasonable negotiation has been Agreed upon Negotiations are done in bulk. If you have a $10,000 credit card with Bank of America, the debt settlement company will most likely have over $3 Million in the debt portfolio that will all be negotiated in a bulk settlement Example: $ 3 million in debt X 60% savings = $1.2 million paid back Bulk Settlements = BEST DEAL!!!
Step 4 Continue putting money towards savings account until all cards in program have been negotiated Keep in contact with debt counselor for any updates Any creditor calls or paperwork should be forwarded to debt settlement company
Step 5 Graduate from the program Be more disciplined in credit card usage Stop robbing from Peter to pay Paul! And Finally…….. BE DEBT FREE AND ENJOY LIFE!!!
