How To Achieve Successful Credit Card Debt Negotiation

Posted:

Credit card debt is a serious problem facing many in the military. The stress of unpaid bills and a military paycheck that that won't cover it all, takes it toll. Not only does mounting debt compromise your military mission, it can also negatively impact your military family life.

Unpaid debt and late payments can damage your credit score making it difficult to get the best rates offered to military servicemembers for home loans, auto loans and military insurance.

Even if your credit rating is already suffering and it is getting increasingly difficult to just make ends meet on your military pay, it is still more possible than ever before to get control of your credit card debt and start building a better financial future. Credit card negotiation is a way to reduce your credit card debts to a manageable level.

WHAT IS CREDIT CARD NEGOTIATION AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Credit card companies don't strategize ways to bring undue pressure or ruin your credit in order to get you to pay your bills. Creditors are mostly interested in being paid at least something for the balance on your credit card statement. All creditors would rather get some money than none - which is their risk if your mounting finances cause you to file for bankruptcy.

To facilitate a successful negotiation of a credit card reduction, contact your credit card company now (or companies if you have more than one large credit card debt) about the possibility of reducing your debt level, thus enabling you to repay your balance.You may be surprised that more often than not, creditors are willing to help with your debt, by changing your payment terms, extending your payment cycle, and, in an unprecedented new trend, even forgiving some or all of your interest payments or lowering your balance due in exchange for one reduced payoff.

It's true that credit card companies today may even forgive some part of the principal amount of your debt, but that will be a more complex process. Even without reducing your balance, remember that the biggest portion of your payment is interest, not principal - so reducing interest can make a world of difference in your payments.

SHOULD YOU USE A CREDIT CARD NEGOTIATOR?

There are credit card debt negotiation companies made up of financial professionals who will negotiate on your behalf with your credit card companies. While credit card negotiation companies can offer support, getting creditors to reduce your principal balance will only be considered if you call the credit card company yourself.

IS DEBT COUNSELING FOR YOU?

This can be a good time to seek debt management counseling. While you are repaying your current debt, you want to work to break the cycle of bad credit card debt, and that's where credit counseling can help. This is the time to re-establish and maintain your credit rating; debt counseling can teach you how to go about this, now.

Repay your credit card debt with the help of your creditors or outside professionals. At the same time, create your own successful fiscal policy for credit management, for long term leveraging of your military money management skills.
