Credit and Budget Counseling

Is Credit Card Debt Holding You Back?

Credit card debt tends to cause problems for consumers because the bill requirements increase right alongside rising debt levels. If more and more of each paycheck is going to paying off credit card debt and you don’t really seem to get anywhere, NFDM can help you develop a customized debt management plan to eliminate debt so you can regain your financial control.


Cut your monthly debt payments, improve your budget

A debt management plan can significantly reduce the amount of money you spend every month on credit card debt. You have more money available to cover other expenses in your budget and even to save up for a rainy day.


Reduce or eliminate high interest charges and penalties

We’ll negotiate with your creditors to waive any penalties that have been applied to your accounts, as well as to reduce or completely eliminate your interest rates. You can get out of debt faster, even though you pay less each month.
