InCreditable Advisors specializes in helping people learn how to manage their financial responsibilities. Our experts in credit counseling, debt settlement, and student loan consolidation will work to help improve your financial situation and manage your debt more effectively.
Financial literacy is surprisingly low in America. Only about one-third of the United States population understands basic financial management concepts, including compound interest, how credit card debt works, or how to effectively review a credit report. The lack of understanding often results in higher cost for services and transactions for mortgages, auto loans, insurance, and job security to name a few.
InCreditable Advisors works with you to help you understand the importance of good credit and how your credit impacts your life. We will sit down and evaluate your financial situation and help you either build or re-establish your credit. We are experts in helping our clients manage their credit situation more effectively.
InCreditable Advisors understands when you are under constant pressure of too much debt. The most important thing you need more than anything else is truthful and balanced advice about the best approach for getting out of debt and staying out of debt. Now is the time to learn debt management skills.
Most debt settlement companies charge an upfront, pre-determined fee of 15% to 30% of the total debt with no guarantees of collecting the debt. InCreditable Advisors shows our clients how to negotiate settlements on their own that will allow them to save more money to pay other financial obligations. Our Senior Credit Advisors work diligently and professionally to help you create a debt settlement plan that fits your particular credit situation.
Student Loan Consolidation
How it works
InCreditable Advisors takes a four step approach to helping you consolidate student loans. We can help you apply each step through our proven tools and manage your new loan effectively once we have retrieved and paid all of your old loan information.
How it effects your credit
All federal and private student loans are considered unsecured debt. This means they are not backed by collateral, such as a house, a car, or a piece of land.
Unsecured student loan debt is looked upon more favorably by lenders when it comes to evaluating your credit worthiness. Student loan debt is often considered good debt because it represents an investment in your future.
