Debt Consolidation in Action: Texas

Helping Texans overcome issues with credit card debt since 1994.

Problems with credit card debt aren’t unique to Texas, but data shows Texans tend to carry a bit more unsecured debt that other Americans. According to statistics, the national credit card debt average is $4,965, but Texans are working to reduce $5,173, on average. That puts Texas in the Top 20 states for high credit card debt – at number 14 to be exact.

 

With that in mind, it’s no surprise that Consolidated Credit’s certified credit counselors have worked with so many Texas residents to overcome problems with debt. Below you’ll find information about some of your neighbors that we’ve helped. If you’re struggling with debt and looking for a solution, we can help.
