Credit Counseling is a free service offered by InCharge Debt Solutions. During the counseling session, you’ll provide information about your personal finances, including income and expenses. We’ll pull your credit report to see how much debt you have (this gives us accurate, up-to-date balances and is a “soft pull” which will not affect your credit score). We’ll diagnose your situation and provide you with a range of debt relief options. One debt relief solution may be a debt management plan; another may be bankruptcy. Call (800) 565-8953 to speak with a certified credit counselor or Start online credit counseling.
Are you looking to consolidate your credit card debt payments without taking out a new loan? Our debt management program is not a new loan, but it can help you get out of debt. And did you know that you can qualify for our debt management program with bad credit? We work with your creditors to get you debt relief now, in the form of lower interest rates, waived credit card fees and lower credit card monthly payments. With more of your monthly payment going toward debt balance, you can dramatically lessen the time it takes to become debt free. Find out if you qualify for our debt management program.
One of the most popular features of our debt management plan is debt consolidation. Paying multiple creditors – each with different due dates – can be time consuming and stress inducing. With the InCharge debt consolidation alternative, you make only one consolidated debt payment to InCharge and we handle the payments to each creditor; this delivers the convenience of debt consolidation without the risk of taking out a new loan. Our free credit consolidation advice helps you discover your options and pay back your credit card debt faster than making minimum payments on your own.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Thanks to InCharge I'll be debt free in 3 months with two last things to pay off. The light is getting bright at the end of this debt tunnel.
My wife and I hit a debt crisis about three years ago as a result of a lot of poor decisions early in our marriage. After some research, I found InCharge. Honestly, I was incredibly skeptical of a credit counseling company, but we were desperate. In the three years we worked with them, they were awesome, giving us the help we needed. I can happily say as of today my credit accounts are paid off and we just purchased our first house! Could not have done it without the help from InCharge.
