How does Debt Settlement Work?

Debt settlement starts with a 3rd party company working with a client’s creditors to negotiate a reduction of debt.
The client stops paying creditors and instead pays a set monthly amount into a neutral ‘savings’ account. That saved money is used to pay down the negotiated debt.
On average -after paying the settlement company- a client will reduce their overall debt by 20-30%.

Everything you need to know about settlement:

Debt settlement or debt negotiation involves reaching an agreement between you, as the borrower, and your creditor. Through this agreement, you repay a portion of your unsecured loan balances, while the remaining amount is forgiven. This can generate a taxable event. Be sure to ask about your tax liability if you work with a settlement company. To facilitate this process, a licensed and bonded settlement company typically arranges the agreement. As the negotiation progresses, the savings on each account can average from 40-70% of the original debt owed before paying the settlement company fees. The length of the program is typically 12 to 60 months, and all settlements are finalized only after you agree and sign off on each negotiated account. Be sure to ask about attorney representation, creditors do file lawsuits on occasion and the settlement company cannot provide legal representation unless the settlement company is a law firm.

Here are a few requirements to keep in mind:

Settlement addresses unsecured debts. Credit cards, signature loans, medical debts, etc.

The average unsecured minimum balance required is normally around $7,500. This can vary.

The average fee charged by settlement company’s range from 22 to 28% of the debt enrolled

Settlement companies cannot operate in all states. Most programs are licensed in 24-30 out of the fifty states.
