Debt Relief Maine

High personal debt levels present challenges to financial stability.

Credit users in Maine don’t have the highest debt levels of any state in the nation, but that doesn’t mean that they’re short on challenges with debt. The average cardholder currently uses over 32% of their available credit limit. Anything higher than 30% is bad for your credit score. And 6 out of every 100 residents have at least one credit card that’s more than 90 days past-due. Many residents are turning to balance transfer credit cards to try and pay off their debt faster. But these do-it-yourself debt solutions don’t always work.

Luckily there are solutions that savvy borrowers have found to regain stability and achieve success. A debt relief program from Consolidated Credit has helped thousands of credit users in Maine to find relief. If you’re facing problems with debt and need help identifying solutions to regain control, we can help.  Call Consolidated Credit at to request a free debt and budget analysis from a certified credit counselor today.
