Debt Relief Programs in Action in Connecticut

See how Connecticuters are cutting through problems with credit card debt.

The average credit user in Connecticut owes over $7,000 to credit card companies. That kind of debt can take years or even decades to pay off, especially if you’re only making minimum payments. If you want to be debt free, you need to find a debt relief option that works for your budget. Consumer credit counseling can help you identify the right solution for your needs and budget.

The information below is designed to help you understand where Connecticuters stand with credit card debt. It also shows how Consolidated Credit has helped other credit users get out of debt, saving time and money.
