Debt Consolidation

Debt consolidation is a process of debt refinancing, in which all your bills are merged into one single debt that is paid back through a loan or even by a management program. It comes with a lower interest rate and reduces your total debt in a way that you can pay it off faster. This process is carried on by the debt consolidating companies.

Criteria for Debt Consolidation

Debt consolidation is a financial strategy that can work well for you only when you fulfill some of the criteria, such as:

  • If your credit score is good enough to qualify for a debt consolidation loan at a lower interest rate or to get a 0% credit card.
  • When you have a plan of not getting any other debt.
  • If you are tired of looking at your cash flowing towards repayment of the loan and want to cut down your current interest rates.
  • Most importantly, when your debts are less than half of your total income.
Disadvantages of Debt Consolidation

Debt consolidation can also be a bad idea when you look into some of the below facts of it:

  • Debt consolidation does not guarantee you with lower interest rates.
  • When you get to pay lower interest rates, your term for the loan repayment is increased. It is never a quick solution.
  • Debt consolidation does not mean that your debts are eliminated.
  • It is not a good idea when you owe a huge number of loans.
  • On missing any payment to the debt consolidating companies, they may revoke all concessions made to you.
