What is debt consolidation?
Debt consolidation is a form of debt refinancing that involves taking out one loan to pay off many existing loans. Consolidating your debt effectively brings all debts together (by transferring them) into one combined loan with one monthly payment.
How does it work?
In reality, it’s impossible to combine individual loans because each has its own interest rate and repayment terms. With a consolidation loan, you’ll receive a new, larger loan and then use the funds to pay off all of the smaller loans you want to consolidate.
In many cases, consolidating debt can result in a lower monthly payment. This happens because different debts often involve different interest rates. By transferring balances from your highinterest rate debt into a consolidation loan at a lower interest rate, you can give yourself a bit of breathing room.
How is a consolidation loan used?
Common uses for consolidation loans are: paying off multiple credit card balances, auto loans, overdue bills, student loans, overdraft balances and in some cases payday loans.
How are consolidation loans issued?
They can be paid in two ways. The lender will either deposit the funds directly into your bank account, and then it will be your responsibility to pay out the debts or bills you want to consolidate. Or, the lender will pay off the debts you jointly agreed to on your behalf.
