Debt Relief New Jersey

Learn how debt affects New Jersey residents and see how some are using credit counseling to find relief.

New Jerseyans have no shortage of challenges they face when it comes to credit card debt. The average household owes almost $10,000 to credit card companies. More than 7% of credit users are more than 90 days behind with their payments. And credit utilization sits just above 27% –  anything higher than 30% will decrease a consumer’s credit score. That makes it even more challenging for New Jersey residents to find solutions that provide debt relief.

The information below comes from real New Jersey residents that found debt relief with the help of Consolidated Credit. If you’re struggling to pay off debt and need help, call us at (844) 276-1544  to request a free confidential debt evaluation from a certified credit counselor.
