What do most Pennsylvania consumers do for Debt Relief?
In Pennsylvania, if you have debt, relief programs are available that include credit card debt negotiation, relief & consolidation services.
Did you know that Pennsylvania is rated #8 regarding states that have the best financial health? The average debt for a Pennsylvania consumer is only $39,100, where the average debt per consumer in the United States as a whole is $47,500. Pennsylvania consumers have eighteen percent less debt than the rest of the country. Pennsylvania consumers have a higher amount of student loan debt than the United States average, but less of every other kind of debt. I guess that makes a lot of sense because if you are getting a college education, then you are likely to have smarter financial habits.

Option One & Two:
Pennsylvania Debt negotiation, also known as debt settlement services or debt validation:
Debt settlement services can allow you to pay off your unsecured debt in anywhere from 2-3 years on average and pay a significant amount less than the total owed on each account. This program is for the person that has a hardship and cannot stay current on their accounts any longer. Once you stop paying on your credit card accounts and join this program, we will make sure all of your creditors are immediately contacted and alerted that you are in the program. We will either set you up with a highly rated law firm in your state and near your residence or if you would prefer we can assist you on our non-attorney debt relief program, called debt validation, that even comes with a 100% guarantee.
On a debt validation program, if you come to us with third-party debt collection accounts, we will usually start by forcing your third-party debt collectors to prove they’re abiding by all of the federal laws including the Credit Card Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Truth in Lending Act.
If we find out they are violating your rights, or if they can’t prove they’re abiding by all of the federal laws, your debt may become uncollectible. An uncollectible debt is one that you don’t have to pay. We then have credit restoration options, where we can refer you to a licensed A+ BBB rated credit repair company upon finishing with having your debt proven to be uncollectible.
If your creditors and third-party debt collectors are abiding by the federal laws, we may then negotiate a settlement on your accounts where you could end up paying back a significant amount less than the full amount owed on each account. On average you will pay back around 60% of your debt if we settle it, and this includes all fees. If we prove the debt to be uncollectible, then you will pay even less money.
If you are current on your accounts when joining this type of debt negotiation program, then your credit score will most likely go down, but you can rebuild your credit score upon graduation from the program.
Your creditors are not paid monthly but are paid in one lump sum payment when enough money accumulates in your trust account, with debt settlement services. You make one payment each month into your trust account, when enough money collects in your trust account to pay your creditor at the reduced amount, you must then authorize the payment, and each creditor gets paid off one by one.

Pennsylvania Consumer Credit Counseling, also known as bad credit debt consolidation programs could reduce your interest rates down to 8% on average. With this type of credit card relief plan, you make one single consolidated payment each month.
You will pay the full amount back, but less interest, after getting approved for a Pennsylvania non-profit consumer credit counseling program. Most consumers prefer a hardship program because they are looking to save the most money, but consumer credit counseling is a good option if you feel secure about staying current on your accounts, and if you can, of course, afford it.
Not all creditors will work with a non-profit consumer credit counseling company. Always make sure to ask the company what lenders are willing to reduce the interest rates, and which ones are not. Sometimes a less reputable company will fail to tell their clients what creditors didn’t agree to reduce the interest rates, so make sure to ask this detail.
Being Sued for Credit Card Debt in Pennsylvania
The Pennsylvania Statute of Limitations on written contracts, including credit cards, medical bills, and personal loans, is four years (42 Pa. C.S. 5525(a)). This four-year statute of limitations in Pennsylvania also includes open-end accounts, oral contracts, and promissory notes. Below, we will explain the difference between open-end and closed-end accounts.
If a creditor is trying to sue you over an unpaid credit card debt in PA and its been over four years since you last paid it, legally, the collection agency can no longer sue you over the debt. Of a matter fact, you can now sue the debt collector for illegally attempting to collect on the debt, and under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), you could receive up to $1,000 per violation.
Golden Financial Services can advise you on what options you have and set you up with a debt validation plan to help you dispute any debts where your creditors may be illegally trying to collect on the debt. Merely Call Toll-Free (866) 376-9846 for Assistance!
What is an open-end account? Open-end accounts stay open and can be used over and over again. For example, a credit card is an open-end account; you can use it over and over again as long as you stay under your credit limit and pay your bill on time. Another example of an open-end account would be a home-equity line of credit and a debit card.
A closed-end account would be a loan that gets closed after you pay the entire balance in full. With a closed-end account the lender gives you a term, and within that term, your entire balance must be paid, along with a set amount of interest and fees that you agreed to at the signing of the loan.
If you buy a new bed or even a car on credit, the lender may issue you a term of five years of payments, and once the five years of payments are complete, the account will get closed. After your car loan is paid-in-full, you cannot charge anything else on it.

We strive to serve our customers with outstanding service. Our goal is to get you out of debt, but we also want to make you feel comfortable every step of the way.

Do you have any of these fears holding you back from joining a debt relief program?
– Afraid of paying high fees and not getting performance? Our performance fee is already included in your payment on the debt settlement program, not extra, and we only earn it when your debt is resolved. This ensures we only get paid, with success.
– Are you afraid that there is no guarantee on this type of program? Ask, and we will give you a 100% Money Back Guarantee on one of our debt relief programs. We have programs that include either an attorney and legal protection, or no attorney but with a 100% written guarantee.
– What if I get sued? My credit card company may sue me, right? On average less than 3% of the credit card companies will sue our clients after we started working on their cases, and if they ever did decide to appeal, we would settle with the debt collector before the court case, keeping your out of the courtroom.
If you get served a summons, immediately send it over to your customer service department to help you with it. As long as you send over the summons right away, everything will be handled before the court date. As a second alternative, we can refer you over to a partner attorney who can assist with resolving the debt and keeping you out of court. A refund will be issued to you for any fees paid into the program towards this one particular account which will cover attorney fees.
– You get to rest assured knowing that our company is A+ rated with the BBB and has NO unresolved complaints in Pennsylvania for debt relief.

However, after your debt is settled and paid, you will be ready to rebuild your credit score, and you won’t have any more debt holding you back! We will teach you how to restore your credit score after graduating on the program.
– Are you afraid that the company you are contacting will only offer you the program that they have available, and then giving you a biased presentation and just trying to sell you on their product? Debt settlement, consumer credit counseling, and debt validation services are all different programs, and potential clients can pick on their own which option they want to sign up for when contacting Golden Financial Services.
