Debt settlement is a program that is designed to help you save as much money as possible, as quickly as possible, based on your unique financial situation. CuraDebt has an in-house performance based debt settlement program. This means that if you qualify for this program you will only pay fees to CuraDebt as each one of your accounts is resolved and you ACCEPT the resolution.
There are many factors that come into play in the debt negotiation process in order to get you the best possible reductions. These factors include the age of debt, type of debt, your income, the state you live in, your age, and many other factors.
More Than 14 Years of Experience
CuraDebt has one of the most experienced teams in the industry. Starting in 1996 the founders of CuraDebt were helping individuals locally in California. In 2000 CuraDebt was formed to help individuals and small business owners nationwide.
How Our Debt Settlement Program Works
Debt settlement works by your placing an agreed to amount into a special purpose account on a monthly basis. If you have a lump sum amount to get started, or have access to a lump sum, it would accelerate the speed of the program.
As money accumulates, CuraDebt finalizes resolutions with the creditors one at a time with the goal of saving you as much money possible on each account. As each offer is near to be finalized, you will receive notification to approve settlement of that account from us. Once you approve, the account is settled in full and only then are CuraDebt fees paid. The process continues until all the accounts are resolved.
Compared to Debt Consolidation
There are two types of debt consolidation. One type of debt consolidation is a debt consolidation plan that you would get through a debt counseling agency, which is designed to lower interest rates. On the other hand, debt settlement is a plan that is negotiated on the actual balances, so it is designed to save you much more money than just lowering your interest rates.
The second type is a debt consolidation loan (there are two types of loans here a secured debt consolidation loan and an unsecured debt consolidation loan) where your debts are combined, and you are paying a new loan with interest and often loan fees. In comparison, by negotiating on your balances, debt settlement is designed to save you more money.
With a debt settlement program, the goal is to pay back a reduced amount and resolve your debts as quickly as possible based on the funds available.
Compared With Consumer Credit Counseling Programs
Other people may consider a debt management plan provided by a consumer credit counseling company. These programs are sponsored by creditors and are designed to make you repay all your debt plus interest. In fact, you will pay a greater amount than your original debt, while your credit report will indicate that you have been repaying your debt through a third party. Some lenders may look at this as equivalent to a chapter 13 payment plan bankruptcy.
The benefit of a debt management plan is that you would save money when the interest rates are reduced over what you are currently playing. If your interest rates are very high right now and your creditors lower them significantly then that could amount to thousands of dollars in savings as we as reducing the time it will take to pay off your balances.
Ultimately, for people who are not making any headway or anyone in a hardship, such as loss of income, debt settlement is a program to seriously be considered.
