Military Debt Consolidation
Dealing with Military Debt: Military Debt Consolidation
Members of the U.S. Armed Services experience debt problems. When it comes to credit debt, CreditGUARD has helped scores of military service members get their financial lives back on track.
The men and women of the U.S. military are held to a higher standard than American civilians. Under Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the military forbids “all conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces,” which could include delinquency on your credit accounts and bills.
Despite the standard of conduct military personnel must embody, many service members experience financial difficulties. Although the SCRA (Servicemembers Civil Relief Act) and the Military Lending Act provide certain protections against interest rates during a service member’s term of duty, the act does not offer protections to veterans.
As a nonprofit organization with an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, CreditGUARD offers a nonprofit debt consolidation program that does not include any new loans.
If you’re a member of the Armed Forces and you’d like to take the first step toward a better financial tomorrow, call one of our Certified Credit Counselors today at 1-800-500-6489.
Military Debt Consolidation: How it Works
Our only goal is to help you get out of debt and remain debt-free.
Many companies offering debt relief solutions to military personnel and veterans are nothing more than predatory lending companies standing to profit from offering you a new loan.
A debt consolidation loan does nothing to help you learn to manage money and avoid new debt.
Our certified credit counselors are professionally trained to negotiate with your creditors to help lower your interest rates and set a low monthly payment you can pay. In addition to this, your certified counselor will also provide you with free financial counseling so you can learn to save money and make long-term changes to your spending habits.
During your free and confidential phone consultation, you will provide your counselor with the following :
- Information regarding the debts you owe
- Your household income
- All your monthly expenses
This is so they can offer you informed and supportive counseling and help you make a budget that you can use to get back on track. After getting an idea of your financial situation, the counselor will provide options matching your resources, lifestyle, and goals.
Benefits of Military Debt Consolidation
A nonprofit debt consolidation plan will help you better manage your debt-to-income ratio because you’ll be making regular, timely payments. Not only that, but with the right plan, most customers can pay off their debt within three to five years, as opposed to the national average of around 30 years. You’ll avoid late fees and legal complications. Working with CreditGUARD will also provide you with the mental and physical relief of knowing you’re moving in the right financial direction, free of harassment from creditors.
- The best part? You make one easy monthly payment.
