Beyond our signature Debt Relief solution, our clients have access to a wide network of partners including options for consolidation loans, credit counselling services, bankruptcy referrals, and more. Our team of debt relief experts will review your unique situation and offer solutions based on your situation, your location, and your goals.
Debt Relief is the core of National Debt Relief’s signature solution. It can cut your monthly payments immediately to relieve cash flow pressure and help you focus on becoming debt-free as inexpensively and quickly as possible.
Our program is easy to understand. Rather than paying your creditors, you’ll deposit a monthly payment to a Dedicated Savings Account, in your name and under your control. As funds build up, we’ll contact your creditors to negotiate and agree upon reduced balances. (Because you’re no longer paying the creditor, they will likely view getting a reduced amount as better than risking no payment at all.) Then, you’ll authorize us to use the funds in your Dedicated Savings Account to pay your creditors the lower, negotiated amounts. As accounts are paid off, they should be reported back as a zero balance.
National Debt Relief goes way beyond making sure you can afford us – we take the time to review your budget to make sure the solution we suggest will actually help take the pressure off. And, because you can customize your deposit schedule, it’s easier to feel in control throughout the process.
National Debt Relief does charge a fee for our service, but all program fees are already included in your Dedicated Savings Account deposit. And, unlike other programs with hardship solutions, our fee is entirely performance-based. We earn nothing for our work until we’ve achieved the results you want, and you feel great about the savings.
Our fees vary by state and the amount of your debt (about 15-25% of your enrolled debt). Compared to the thousands of dollars in interest you may pay on credit cards while struggling to pay them off, you can still expect to see an impressive amount of savings with National Debt Relief.
While every program differs, here’s an example from a recent client:
“Mary” came to National Debt Relief owing $22,800 between credit cards and a personal loan and was paying a little over $1020/month. Having recently transitioned to a fixed income, her focus was reducing the payment and getting rid of the debt. She set up a $362/month deposit for an estimated 48 months (4 years) to become debt-free.
Because all fees were included, “Mary’s” debt could be resolved for about $17,300 instead of an estimated $63,434 based on minimum payments.
