TOO MUCH DEBT TO PAY OFF? Consolidate or manage your credit card debts and other bills in Indiana without needing to obtain or qualify for a loan.
Debt Relief Services Contained in This Group - Credit Counseling and Debt Settlement.
- These services are better suited for someone that wants to do a debt consolidation,
but is unable to do so because there is simply too much in bills to consolidate with a loan. The monthly payment would be too big, or approval is not possible because of a poor credit record, insufficient income or other reasons (as determined by a lender).
PLEASE NOTE: 1) Effect on your Credit? Making use of these programs may have a negative impact on your credit report (not necessarily your score).
you have started making your payments late and cannot get your credit card debts
controlled, one of these programs could be the best choice for you in getting
help with your bills. 2) Evaluate all Options. Thoroughly consider all of your options by taking into account the positive and negative aspects of
each one before deciding to go with a particular company. Ask for a complete list of fees that will (or can) be charged and a complete explanation of each... before you sign or make a verbal agreement to anything! Research the company's name with popular review sites or search your state government's web site to see if it has a history of complaints filed against it. 3) Is it a Good Fit... for You?
You may need help, but you shouldn't necessarily take the hand of the first
company that comes along. The first thing you should do is make sure that you
are selecting the right type of help for YOUR needs. A hastily made choice might
put you in a worse position than you already find yourself!

- Looking for alternatives to debt consolidation? When settling debts, the consumer gets help from a service or law firm
that works towards negotiating lower balances to be paid off to their client's creditors. The debts being negotiated cannot be secured. In other words, the balances being negotiated cannot be attached to assets
that have used as collateral for the debt, such as an automobile or home.

HAVE a GOOD to EXCELLENT CREDIT HISTORY? Consolidate your debts into a personal loan in Indiana.
Loan Companies / Services Covered in This Category - Direct lenders, aggregator sites and peer to peer lenders. Keep in mind... each lender has different criteria for loan approvals (underwriting guidelines). Even though they typically require borrowers to have a good to excellent credit record, each lender underwrites loan applications to its own individual guidelines. This means you could be approved by one lender, even after already getting declined by another.
- Because personal loans are most often unsecured, they are a much more difficult form of debt consolidation to obtain. Also, consumers may need a larger loan than they are able to be approved for in order to consolidate their debt. Finally, because they
do not have collateral and present considerably more risk for the lender, the offered interest rates can be significantly higher than with secured loans, like mortgages.
[AKA: Unsecured personal loan, signature loans and note loan.]
Direct Lender - You make application 'directly' to the company (lender) that will either decline, or approve and fund your loan application.
Aggregator - Aggregators basically function as a broker and take your
application and perform the action of an agent to to assist you with finding
a loan. They are not involved in lending money to borrowers, however, they
do have an edge over others in that they are not tied down to one set of
guidelines and can shop around.
[AKA / Similiar / Related Term(s): Consumer Loan broker.]
Peer-to-Peer Lenders - This funding
for these loans comes from other consumers. P2P lenders performs the services of an intermediary that matches approved borrowers to investors willing to fund loans that meet a pre-defined
set of underwriting guidelines. They claim to be less expensive to borrow money from, as they removed the middlemen, such as the bank, finance company and
other lending institutions.
