Aurora EAP - Stress-Free Debt Elimination

13 Nov 2019

Mortgages, student loans, car payments, credit card debt. Americans owe $13 trillion, and those aged 35-54 owe at least $133,000 in total household debt.

While there is good reason to avoid unnecessary accumulation of debt, borrowing money remains easy to do. Preventing accumulation and managing overwhelming debt can be difficult, but proactively controlling your debt is important for your financial future.

Here's How:

  • Set a clear budget. Those who successfully control debt take the time to budget every expense. Re-evaluate your budget monthly to ensure it's practical.
  • Cut out the extras. How many non-grocery food purchases did you make last month? Eliminate unnecessary expenses such as cable, the newest iPhone or trips to the drive-through.
  • Talk to your creditors. Outline your income and expenses to display the hardship that you are facing. Many creditors are willing to lower your minimum payments temporarily.
