Debt Consolidation Without a Loan

TOO MUCH DEBT? Consolidate or manage your bills in Alabama without needing to take out new loans.

Debt Help Programs Included in This List - Debt Settlement and Credit Counseling.

The Basics - These programs are ideal for someone that wants to do a debt consolidation, but cannot because they have too much debt to fit into a loan. Either the resulting payment would be too large, or they cannot get an approval for a loan because of a bad credit history, lack of sufficient income or other reasons (as determined by the lender). PLEASE NOTE: 1) Impact on Credit? Using these programs may have a negative impact on your credit history, but if you have already made late payments and are unable to get your credit card debt under control by yourself, one of these program options may still be best for your personal financial needs. 2) Examine all Options. Evaluate ALL of your available options thoroughly by examining the pros and cons of each before signing up for a service. Request a full list of fees and an explanation of each... up front! Look up the company's name with popular rating sites or the state government to see if it has a complaint history. 3) Right for You? Don't simply take the first help offered to you. First, make sure that it is the right help for your needs. A poor decision could put you in an even worse situation!

Debt Settlement - With this type of debt relief, which is considered a debt consolidation alternative, the consumer gets assistance from a company that negotiates a lower balance on the outstanding debt owed. The debts negotiated for must be unsecured. That is, your debts cannot be tied to collateral, such as a car loan or mortgage.

Credit Counseling - When consolidating debt with a credit counseling firm, the counselor attempts to negotiate lower interest rates, get assessed penalty fees waived and assist the borrower with getting their credit card debt and other unsecured obligations under control. The consolidation occurs when a consumer allows the counselor to take over control of his/her payments. The borrower then makes one "consolidated" payment to the credit counseling agency, which in turn, makes payments to the creditors.

Personal Loans for Debt Consolidation

HAVE GOOD to GREAT CREDIT, BUT TOO MUCH DEBT? Consolidate debt with an unsecured personal loan in Alabama.

Loan Programs / Companies Included in This List - Direct lenders, aggregators and peer to peer lending. Keep in mind... each company has different criteria for approving loans (underwriting guidelines). Although they generally require good credit, not all lenders evaluate applications for loans exactly the same way. This results in the possibility of being approved with one lender, even after being turned down by another.

The Basics - Because they are unsecured (require no collateral), a personal loan is considerably more difficult to qualify for as a debt help option. When used as debt consolidation loans, they are especially difficult to obtain as a consumer typically needs a larger size loan when consolidating bills. Also, because of the risk to the lender, the interest rates may be considerably higher than other types of loans.
[AKA: Unsecured loans, signature loans and note loans.]

Direct Lenders - You apply online 'directly' with the company (lender) that will either deny, or approve and fund your loan request.

Aggregators - These websites essentially operate as a broker and take your application info and act as agents on your behalf to help you find and obtain a loan. They do not actually lend money, however, they do have an advantage in that they can shop multiple programs and lenders at once to try and get your application approved.
[AKA / Similar / Related Term(s): Loan broker.]

Peer-to-Peer Lending - This form of borrowing is made available through the money of other consumers. These companies act as an intermediary network that matches prospective borrowers to individuals willing to lend (invest) in loan requests that meet pre-set underwriting guidelines. Their claim is that they are cheaper for consumers to use, as they cut out the middlemen, such as banks, finance companies and other lenders.
[AKA: P2P lending, peer lending, person-to-person lending and social lending.]
