Debt Management Plan
If you’re having difficulty paying bills or staying current on credit cards, this service could prove invaluable for you. Accel counselors will contact your creditors on your behalf to negotiate concessions and/or work out loan payment agreements. Typically, credit card companies will agree to lower interest, eliminate fees and cease collection activity.
