Your bills are piling up, you can hardly make your payments, and as a result, you don’t have enough money at the end of each month to set aside for the future. Is debt weighing you down? You’re not alone. The median American household debt is $70,000 (including mortgage and real estate debt), according to the most recent statistics from the Census Bureau.

Whether you owe a lot or just a little, we can help. Paying off credit cards and loans requires a plan; you can’t just throw extra money at the problem and hope it goes away. Take our eight-question quiz to learn strategies that will help you get out of debt faster.
