How to Address Credit Card Debt
There are many reasons you may find yourself in credit card debt. Perhaps you lost your job and you’ve been paying for groceries and utilities with your credit card. Maybe you had an unexpected medical emergency and you have mounting medical bills. Or, maybe you like to shop. Regardless, this is one case in life where the reason “why” is far less important than what you need to do next to get your debt under control and minimize the impact on your credit score.
We recommend that you:
- Pay something: Try to pay the minimum each month. Missing payments or making late payments will not only hurt your credit further, but they will also incur penalties that will make the problem worse.
- Don’t borrow: Getting further into debt only makes the problem worse. If you take a payday loan or borrow from your 401(k) plan, you will be hit with interest and penalties.
- Track your spending: You may be tempted to put yourself on a spending diet. If you happen to be a big shopper, that’s a good idea. However, it’s important to be able to track your monthly spending so you can create a budget that you can live with going forward. Cutting out necessities won’t show a realistic view of what you need going forward.
