A senior’s advancing health condition can affect the utility of the services offered by National Debt Relief.

Cons:

  • National Debt Relief does not provide debt consolidation for mortgages, car loans or other loans with collateral.
  • Seniors with bad credit or without demonstrable financial hardship may not qualify for the service.
  • Seniors will not be able to use their credit cards while enrolled in the program.

Package Details:

National Debt Relief offers a debt consolidation settlement program.This program enables consumers to consolidate many debts into a single manageable debt. Debt consolidation settlement can lower interest rates and monthly payments, nd can allow seniors to concentrate on one lowered monthly payment instead of paying several smaller debts each month.  

This program enables seniors to move many of their debts into one single account, but not all debts are eligible. Unsecured debts, credit cards, medical bills, and other credit lines are eligible for the program; however, student loans and payday loans cannot always be consolidated.

To qualify for National Debt Relief’s debt settlement consolidation program, a senior must have $7,500 of outstanding debt and a financial hardship such as a divorce, unemployment, loss of income, death of a spouse and/or unpaid taxes. The financial hardship is used by the company’s debt negotiators to obtain lower interest rates on the debts.

After successful debt settlement negotiations and consolidation, customers can expect an average debt reduction of 30% after fees. The company charges fees which are 18-25% of the overall debt.
