Of course, some of these factors such as saving and following a budget are up to the consumer.

Participating creditors include: American Express Bank of America Capital One Chase Card Services Citi Discover Financial Services GE Money HSBC Card Services U.S. Bank Wells Fargo Card Services

If you have a troubled account with one of these banks, call and ask about the new repayment plans. If you need more help, reach out to the NFCC.
