What is debt consolidation?

If you have multiple high-interest loans, consider consolidating your debt into one streamlined loan.

Debt consolidation allows you to roll multiple debts into a single, monthly, recurring payment with a fixed interest rate. It usually involves debts including medical or credit card bills.

Types of consolidation

There are several types of debt consolidation to meet individual borrower needs. They include debt consolidation loans, credit card balance transfer, student loan consolidation and home equity loans.

Is debt consolidation a good idea?

Debt consolidation may be a smart move for you. You may:

  • Reduce your Annual Percentage Rate (APR) and lower your monthly payment.
  • Shorten your repayment term.
  • Improve your credit score.
  • Streamline into one larger, simple monthly payment.
  • Reduce your payments and shorten your repayment term.
