How do you find a good debt management service?
Just like diet and exercise, there are some people who are excellent at staying on track and others who need a buddy to help them along. If you’re the kind of person who can’t stick to a budget, or even create one in the first place, you may want to consider getting help for your credit card debt management.
There are all kinds of debt management services available, but unfortunately not all of them may be good for you. Try to find a non-profit agency through your financial institution or your local consumer protection agency. You want to avoid organizations that charge hidden fees or pressure you to make “voluntary” payments toward their “cause”.
A good credit counseling service will really help you with your debt management. They can offer you good advice, help you to create your monthly budget, and monitor how well you can stick with it. They will even offer you free educational workshops and information to help you with your new best friend—your budget!
If you look for help with credit debt management through a recognized bank (for example) you’re more likely to find a legitimate organization with highly trained people to can help you.
