What Is Debt Consolidation?

Debt consolidation is a type of loan typically provided by a consumer credit service. Instead of struggling to make payments to your credit card or original lender, when you pursue debt consolidation, the credit service will negotiate with your lenders and pay off the debt you owe. You, in turn, will make monthly payments to the credit service.

Generally, debt consolidation results in a more favorable interest rate and more affordable monthly payments. In some cases, you may even be able to obtain a reduction on the total amount you owe.

Benefits And Downsides Of Debt Consolidation

Debt Consolidation

For some people, debt consolidation is a better option than consumer bankruptcy. It can allow you to regain control over your debt in a single, manageable monthly payment. Although debt consolidation can still affect your credit score, the impact will be far less detrimental than filing bankruptcy.

Debt consolidation can have downsides. As with debt settlement, you will owe taxes on the amount of any debt that is forgiven. For some, the tax burden alone can be prohibitive.
