When Is The Right Time To Seek Help?

The answer to that question is simple. One of the first signs your debt is too hard to handle is if you start missing monthly payments or can’t meet the minimum payment requirement. Finding yourself with significant amounts of unsecured debt such as mortgages and installment loans or even your high-interest rate credit cards may be a sign you need the advice of a credit or debt counselor. If you are considering a consolidation it would be a great time to talk to a counselor to discover the right plan for you.

This helps ensure you are receiving the best, most knowledgeable help possible. Once you have discovered the best-matched debt counselor you are ready to receive help in all areas of money management.
