The Ultimate guide to payday loan consolidation
What you can do if you’re stuck in the payday loan trap
Get help. Real PDL Help has provided debt relief to thousands of financially challenged Americans burdened with the payday loan cycle. With over a decade of experience, we know the payday loan industry inside and out and it's important to have someone on your side with experience in the law and debtor protections (see our payday loans map on the left), including how much and how many payday loans you can take out and what fees are permitted. Some states don't allow payday lending at all and others allow it but require lenders to be licensed. In certain states, if a payday loan is made by a business that is not licensed in that state, the payday loan may be invalid and/or illegal. In that situation, the lender may not even have the right to require the consumer to repay the loan. We can help identify if your lender is licensed and ensure you don’t pay a dime more than you need to!

PAYDAY LOAN CONSOLIDATION VS. DEBT SETTLEMENT
What’s the difference between payday loan consolidation and payday loan settlement? With most kinds of debt, a "settlement" is an agreement for the debtor to pay less than the balance owed to a creditor, frequently as a single, lump sum payment. If a debtor is experiencing financial hardship or nearing bankruptcy a creditor may agree to a "settlement" in order to get back a substantial part of the outstanding loan when the entire amount is at risk.
The payday loan industry tends to work a little differently when it comes to settlement. Our payday loan consolidation plans typically include a settlement at the end of the extended repayment period. The final payment on the consolidation plan is the settlement. But even with that settlement, the balance at the time you enter one of our debt management programs typically ends up being repaid in full. And that's better for both parties. With payday loan consolidation, the reduction in interest and fees over the course of the repayment plan typically represents the settlement and it can be a very substantial amount of money.
Payday lenders recognize when a debtor consolidates, they stand to recoup the entire loan balance instead of pushing the debtor into a deeper hole which jeopardizes the entire loan. And for a debtor, even though the full loan balance is typically paid off, the total amount paid (cost of the loan) is astronomically less than it would have been, and with no effect on credit.
Bottom line, payday loan consolidation can mean HUGE savings -- check this page for what we mean by huge. When fees and interest stop accumulating, and your payday loans are stopped from rolling over, you're able to get out of debt much more quickly. Your income goes further and can be utilized more efficiently to pay down the debt. Use our debt management resources below to calculate savings and expenses in the different possible scenarios.
