Consumer debt checkupPersonal debt is a major problem in the U.S. – particularly following the economic downturn when many Americans turned to using credit and/or payday loans to cover monthly expenses when their households were hit by reduced income and unemployment.

Credit Card Debt Statistics

Credit card debt represents a big portion of our total national debt. It is also a major source of financial hardship for many Americans who struggle to pay their bills each month.

So what does this mean? Let’s say you have exactly the average credit card debt of $6600. You manage to get a balance transfer to a new credit card without any balance transfer fees at 12% interest – just below the national APR average right now. If you paid only the minimum payment which will start around $132, it will take you over 23 years to pay back your debt and you will pay $6144.87 in interest. At this rate, America is going to be in debt for a long time!

Rather than facing the daily hassle of your big credit card debts for the next several decades, beat the debt statistics and start reducing your debt now. With a debt management program you can get an interest rate around 6%-10% and most people are completely debt-free in 3-5 years.
