Debt Relief Minnesota

Learn how debt is affecting Minnesotans and how credit counseling may help you find relief.

When it comes to overcoming challenges with credit card debt, Minnesota credit users are ahead of the game. They have lower than average balances, fewer delinquencies, and an average credit score of 709. But that’s not to say that there aren’t some credit users who are struggling. With an average balance of over $6,700, some residents are finding it difficult to get out of debt using traditional monthly payments.

The good news is that there’s a program that can make it faster and easier to pay off credit card debt. A debt management program helps reduce or eliminate interest charges, so you can get out of debt faster. If you’re struggling with debt and working to regain control, we may be able to help. Call Consolidated Credit at 1-888-294-3130 to request a free confidential debt evaluation from a certified credit counselor.
