The Risks of  Traditional Debt Consolidation
The majority of consumers recognize a traditional debt consolidation loan as the most common and popular form of debt relief. Debt consolidation loans allow the consumer to make one simple payment a month as opposed to dispersing multiple payments to all their creditors. In turn, the consolidation company fronts the money to the consumer so they can pay off their creditors in full. In simple terms, taking out a debt consolidation loan implies the process in which a company provides you with money to pay off your debts while clearing the headache of dealing with a number of creditors on a monthly basis. In turn, the new “debt” you face exists in a consolidated form and owed to the company providing you the loan. And while this has been a popular debt relief option for many consumers facing outstanding debt obligations, there are a number of risks involved in taking out a consolidation loan that need to be recognized before moving forward with such a debt relief option.

To begin, an initial perk of a debt consolidation loan that is appealing is a lower monthly payment. The debt consolidation loan company offers a lower, more comfortable payment by extending the time that you have to pay off the loan with them. However, what a handful of consumers don’t recognize is that the interest rates on the balances remain the same as the old interest rates. While the loan may solve your short term troubles, you may eventually pay back more than the original debt amount to the consolidation company because you are paying them back over a longer period of time with interest.

In addition, the potential for consumers to pile on more debt after receiving a debt consolidation loan looms in the background. The reason for this lies in the fact that a debt consolidation loan clears your accounts and resets the maximum limit on the credit cards once again. As a result, if the consumer is not entirely responsible with their finances, the debt may once again continue to pile on as financial freedom is often perceived once the original debts are paid off. Essentially, if you are not tight with your spending habits or fail to set up and establish a well balanced budget that suits your necessities and minimizes unnecessary expenses, it is likely that you may end up right back in the situation you started in before receiving the loan. While a debt consolidation loan may allow you to manage your outstanding debt a lot easier than before, it doesn’t eliminate the initial causes of why you ended up in debt in the first place, nor does it prevent those causes from taking root in the future once again.
