Consolidation Options for Reduced Interest
Those who are worried about long-term credit blemishes or that have money to pay for the loans, just not the amount they are burdened with, should ask about consolidation options where you put the remaining balances from your loans together into one loan. Then, you are only paying interest on one amount.
This makes one easy payment instead of several and can be a more affordable option for many. If you don't qualify for a consolidation loan, settlement may be the only option.
Settlement Options with Consolidation
The student loan debt settlement company may be able to settle your debts through negotiations. If you don't have the money that is needed to pay off the amount that the debt was settled to, then you may consolidate all the settled amounts into one loan.
Settlement is a great way to pay a fraction of what you owe, so it may be easiest to pay off some of the debts that you can with a settlement, and then pay off the remaining ones when you have enough to do so. If not, find out if you can settle and then consolidate those amounts into one lower payment each month.
Once you are able to settle some of the debts, you will want to contact the credit bureaus to make sure they have been notified that you no longer carry those debts. This can improve your credit score. Settling a debt isn't as good as paying the debt off in full, but it's better than having a past due or unpaid amount.
If student debt has made your monthly finances strained and you have several unpaid debts, it's time to cut out paying a lot of interest on multiple amounts. Try to settle and consolidate the debts if you can, and then you can work on becoming debt-free a lot faster. Seek help for life-changing financial results.
