Cut High Interest Debt Payments In 2017

Contributed by: Heath Combs

Get a little carried away during the holidays?

​Many people don’t realize that they can refinance their existing debt at lower rates. At Truliant, our specialists look for debt reduction solutions that don’t weigh you down, and help you get on the path to a stronger financial future.

It starts with a brief one-on-one review, a financial checkup, with a Truliant specialist that looks at your credit and debt and helps find smart ways to manage or restructure it with better rates, savings, more affordable payments, or to free up cash.

Regardless of your income, this review can help better position your finances. Our No-Cost Credit Review has uncovered smart ways for our members to meet their financial needs. It helped one couple find extra money for in-vitro fertilization therapy. It helped drop auto loan rates as high as 24% from other lenders to single digit rates with Truliant.

It consolidated credit card debt from stacks of cards and large monthly payments into fixed-rates and manageable payments. It can help cut monthly payments by hundreds of dollars. 

One of the biggest benefits of your review is our specialists, your own personal finance strategists who work with you to explore improvements you can make. You can visit any of our 32 locations in the central Carolinas or Virginia, or give our Member Contact Center a call at 800.822.0382 and our specialists will help with your review by phone. You can also visit our Debt Consolidation Resource Center to learn more. 

High interest rate credit card and other debt add up quickly. Sometimes a checkup is necessary because you need extra cash or have a pressing need for a vehicle. You might’ve gotten a little carried away during the holidays. Or, you may have missed a payment. Even members with a comfortable savings and investment cushion can benefit from periodically sizing up their debt, and using our salaried, non-commissioned financial advisors to help you reach your goals. 

We find equity and have a range of loan options, from home equity, personal convenience loans, preferred lines of credit, and other options tailored to fit your needs and improve your overall debt situation.
We also have technology tools to help you monitor your daily financial picture.

We all want to know where we stand with our finances. Your review with a Truliant specialist, along with our tech tools, can help alleviate uncertainty about your personal finances. You don’t have to be trapped in a high-interest debt cycle with a budget leaving little wiggle room.

We all want to know we’re on the right track with our money. Having a good read on our finances impacts many turning points in our lives, from first vehicles and college costs, to home ownership, parenting and retirement.

Make this the year that you take control. Regardless of your income (20,000+ or $200,000+) or credit score (good or bad), it’s never too late to make a resolution to strengthen your personal finances in 2017. Start with a financial review at your Truliant Member Financial Center.
