EDMONTON CONSOLIDATED CREDIT

WHY DO PEOPLE CONSOLIDATE THEIR CREDIT?

Consolidated Credit Loans are a common approach to debt relief. People obtain debt consolidation loans for a variety of reasons:

  • Simplification: Instead of paying off several loans and debts, consolidation combines all debts into one monthly payment to one creditor.
  • Potential Savings on Interest: Combining several high-interest debt sources into a lower-interest consolidated debt loan can potentially save on interest payments.
  • Potential to Reduce Monthly Payment: This will apply if you can secure a consolidated loan with a lower interest than you had on your debts. 
  • Potential to Pay off Your Debts Faster: Consolidated loans have a potential upside only if you can secure a loan with a lower interest rate than on your previous debts.

VERY REAL DOWNSIDES TO CONSOLIDATING YOUR CREDIT

A consolidated credit loan plan is not enough to help shape a healthier and more secure financial future for yourself. In many cases, people who have used this option for debt relief are either:

  • Unable to fulfill their monthly payment obligations
  • Often, they finish the loan with additional accumulated debt

The reality behind consolidated credit as a debt relief solution is that it is not nearly enough to succeed. Consolidated Credit plans frequently coincide with open and honest credit counselling and drastic lifestyle and spending habits changes. If you do not change the practices that landed you in financial hardship in the first place, you will most likely find yourself in the same situation down the road.

CONSUMER PROPOSAL

THE ALTERNATIVE TO CONSOLIDATED CREDIT LOANS

A Consumer Proposal consolidates your unsecured debts into one monthly payment. Suppose the financial institutions have turned you down for a consolidation loan (or you have a consolidated loan and now owe on your credit cards in addition to your loan). In that case, a Consumer Proposal may be the answer:

  • A Consumer Proposal typically is not secured by any of your assets, whereas a Consolidated Loan may be
  • A Consumer Proposal also offers counselling so that you receive tools for budgeting
  • A Consumer Proposal does not accumulate
