Everyone’s financial situation is unique and different. Struggling with debt is stressful and can disrupt many aspects of your life. When searching for debt help, it’s normal to be overwhelmed by your options. 

A Consolidation Specialist will help you analyze your debt and finances to determine if debt resolution is the right choice for you. Beyond Finance only enrolls people who are good candidates for the program. If you have been accepted into the program, it means we are confident we can get resolutions that will save you money and time.

Debt Resolution Benefits

  • Highly trained debt negotiation specialists get proven results
  • Pay off debt faster
  • Pay a fraction of what you owe
  • Reduces your monthly payments during the program

The minimum payment example is based on a credit card for individuals with fair credit, having an interest rate of 23% (rounded up to the nearest percentage point) and assumes a payment of 3% of the balance. Please note that, assuming the principal balance does not increase due to additional charges, fees, and interest, the required minimum monthly payment will decrease over time as additional minimum monthly payments are made and reduce the total balance.

Sharing Debt Resolution With Others

When you find immediate relief through debt resolution, it can be exciting to share that good experience with others. You may know people who could benefit from the program. If you have a family member or friend struggling with debt, share your positive experience with them. 
You can also encourage them to speak with a Consolidation Specialist. If the program is right for them and their debt, a specialist will help them enroll and begin their journey.
