Debt Relief Iowa

See how Iowans are finding debt relief with the help of Consolidated Credit.

With an average credit card balance of almost $7,000, Iowans are not short on challenges with credit card debt. The average cardholder currently uses over 31% of their available credit. Anything higher than 30% is bad for your credit score, meaning do-it-yourself options for debt consolidation don’t work as effectively. If you have this much debt, you will often need professional help to pay it off effectively.

The information below can help you understand how credit card debt affects consumers Iowa. We also provide some case studies to show how we’ve helped some your neighbors overcome their challenges with credit card debt. If you’re working to get ahead of your own issues with debt, call us at  to request a free consultation from a certified credit counselor.
