Credit card debt is one of the main problems that is facing people all around the US, and the Chase credit card is one of the most commonly used card. The highest interest rates, coupled with diminishing wealth during the economy downturn, debt is rising at breakneck speed. Today, people owe more on their credit cards because they are using those cards to cover things that their paychecks no longer can. It is possible to negotiate with the company, with the help of a debt settlement company, to help with a Chase credit card settlement.

Business Process Outsourcing Benefits (BPO)

July 20th, 2010

Debt Rehab is a business process outsourcing company.  An advantage of BPO is the way in which it helps to increase a company’s flexibility. However, several sources which have different ways in which they perceive organizational flexibility. Therefore business process outsourcing enhances the flexibility of an organization in different ways.

Most services provided by BPO vendors are offered on a fee-for-service basis. This can help a company becoming more flexible by transforming fixed into variable costs. A variable cost structure helps a company responding to changes in required capacity and does not require a company to invest in assets, thereby making the company more flexible. Outsourcing may provide a firm with increased flexibility in its resource management and may reduce response times to major environmental changes.

Another way in which BPO contributes to a company’s flexibility is that a company is able to focus on its core competency, without being burdened by the demands of bureaucratic restraints. Key employees are herewith released from performing non-core or administrative processes and can invest more time and energy in building the firm’s core businesses. The key lies in knowing which of the main value drivers to focus on – customer intamacy, product leadership, or operational excellence. Focusing more on one of these drivers may help a company create a competitive edge.

A third way in which BPO increases organizational flexibility is by increasing the speed of business processes. Using techniques such as linear programming can reduce cycle time and inventory levels, which can increase efficiency and cut costs. Supply chain management with the effective use of supply chain partners and business process outsourcing increases the speed of several business processes, such as the throughput in the case of a manufacturing company.

Finally, flexibility is seen as a stage in the organizational life cycle. BPO helped to transform Nortel from a bureaucratic organization into a very agile competitor.  A company can maintain growth goals while avoiding standard business bottlenecks.  BPO therefore allows firms to retain their entrepreneurial speed and agility, which they would otherwise sacrifice in order to become efficient as they expanded. It avoids a premature internal transition from its informal entrepreneurial phase to a more bureaucratic mode of operation.

A company may be able to grow at a faster pace as it will be less constrained by large capital expenditures for people or equipment that may take years to amortize, may become outdated or turn out to be a poor match for the company over time.

Determine the Extent of Your Debt Problem

July 13th, 2010

Determine the Extent of Your Debt Problem

Step 1
Request a copy of your credit report from one or all three major credit reporting agencies in the U.S. The companies are TransUnion LLC, Equifax Credit Information Services, Inc., and Experian.
Step 2
Review your credit report and check for inaccuracies, such as incorrect personal information, accounts that do not belong to you and even accounts listed with balances that are actually paid in full. It’s also important to know your FICO score, which is a credit score system. The acronym ‘FICO’ is derived from the name of the software used to calculate the score. While FICO scores range from 300-850, the average score is somewhere in the high 500s.
Step 3
Determine how much debt you have by adding up the balances of all of your credit accounts, loans, both secured and unsecured, and even collection accounts.
Step 4
Use this information when making your decisions about filing for bankruptcy or employing a debt settlement agency to help alleviate your financial problems.

Examine Your Monthly Finances

Step 1
On a sheet of paper, list all of your monthly income including paychecks, alimony/spousal support, child support, bank, investment and rental interests or income. If you work overtime or receive bonuses, include that information, too. If you opt for filing bankruptcy, you will need to include your average monthly income from the six months prior to filing in your bankruptcy petition, so it’s important to get these numbers no matter which solution you opt for, bankruptcy or credit counseling.
Step 2
On another sheet of paper, list all of your mandatory monthly living expenses, such as for housing, transportation, insurance, prescriptions and doctor visits, utilities, groceries and education-related costs. Don’t include payments for credit card debts, entertainment, or other items that are not necessary for your day-to-day survival. Definitely do not list an expense twice. That means if you used your credit cards to buy prescriptions, include that cost in your mandatory expenses list. However, if you used your credit card to buy a shirt, do not list the purchase on your mandatory expenses list at all, unless it was necessary for say, work.
Step 3
Subtract the total of your monthly living expenses from your total monthly income. A balance indicates you have expendable income you could potentially use to pay down your debts. A zero or negative balance indicates you do not have expendable income that could be used to pay down your debt.
Step 4
These calcuations are important for helping you formulate your decisions about filing for bankruptcy or seeking the aid of a debt settlement agency.

Determining if Debt Settlement is Right For You

Step 1
Determine if you could pay down your debts with your current income. If your income does not exceed your housing expenses, utilities, gas, groceries, and basic financial needs for the month, debt settlement is not a viable solution for you. However, if your monthly income exceeds your basic living expenses, debt settlement may help you resolve your financial crisis.
Step 2
Determine if your debt situation qualifies for debt settlement services by examining the total amount of unsecured debt you owe. To qualify, you will usually need to owe at least $7,500 in unsecured debt. However, the qualifying balance will vary by debt settlement company. Make sure you ask each debt settlement company about their unsecured debt balance requirements to determine which debt settlement company is right for your situation.
Step 3
Look for reputable debt settlement companies. Companies that charge huge fees up-front are companies to be avoided. Opt for debt settlement companies endorsed by the Better Business Bureau, or some other reputable pro-consumer group. Make sure to check that their fees are reasonable for the services rendered.
Step 4
Compare the services each company offers. Look for companies with a sound history of effectively negotiating with creditors. Ask for references or case studies you can examine that prove the company’s track record. If company representatives are hesitant to provide you with that information, walk, don’t run, out their door.
Step 5
Examine the pros and cons of committing to a debt settlement program. Ask the debt settlement company if by hiring them to represent you to negotiate your debts will your various creditors how your life might be impacted. Will those harrassing creditor calls stop? (possible, but no guarantees. Creditors can still contact you for the collection of debts they are owed unless or until you file bankruptcy). Also, inquire how a debt settlement program will impact your credit in the future and what the long-term side effects to your credit might be.
Step 6
Make sure you are prepared for the drawbacks of debt settlement programs such as the potential for increased creditor calls, possible collection lawsuits initiated by creditors, damaged credit and tax problems. If you don’t think you can handle these possibilities, then you should probably look for another debt solution.

Determining if Bankruptcy is Right For You

Step 1
Determine if you have any other options for resolving your financial crisis short of filing bankruptcy. Look online for other solutions to your debt problems such as debt settlement, debt management and nonprofit assistance. In addition, attorneys who practice bankruptcy law have begun to offer debt settlement services to clients who might have filed a bankruptcy before the Bankruptcy Code was overhauled in October, 2005, and find the new laws too onerous.
Step 2
Determine if you qualify for bankruptcy by reading the most current version of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, found in Title 11 of the U.S. Code. However, the revamped Bankruptcy Code is extremely complex to understand, so don’t be surprised if you aren’t able to comprehend much of what you are reading. The Bankruptcy Code can be found online. Many books attempting to explain the Code in plain English have been written, so check out your local library or bookstore for some helpful titles. Even if you discuss your financial problems with an attorney who specializes in bankruptcies, you might still want to read up on the law for yourself.
Step 3
Determine which bankruptcy chapter you qualify for by reading the descriptions of each type of bankruptcy, as well as by reading the rules and regulations associated with each. This information can be found at your local library, bookstore, online, or by talking with an attorney who handles bankruptcies in their everyday practice.
Step 4
Court costs for filing bankruptcy are different depending on which chapter you file. Currently, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy costs $299 in filing fees while a Chapter 13 costs $274, although Congress can change those fees at any time. It will also be important to learn how much an attorney will charge you to represent you in your bankruptcy. If you meet with a bankruptcy attorney, they will likely give you a written fee quote for their services either at your first meeting or perhaps in the mail. Do not expect to be able to email a bankruptcy attorney for a price quote on what they would charge for their services. Bankruptcy is an extremely complex area of law and an attorney well familiar with the law’s complexity wouldn’t likely give you a fee quote over the phone or in an email without knowing your entire financial picture. Would you call a doctor to ask how much it would cost to set your broken arm? Do you think the doctor would even come to the phone, and secondly, do you think they should or would give you an answer? They don’t know how broken your arm is by talking to you on the phone and a bankruptcy attorney doesn’t know how bad your financial situation is until they meet with you to discuss it.
Step 5
Another important consideration is deciding whether filing for bankruptcy will resolve your credit problems. Depending on the types and amounts of your debts, a bankruptcy filing won’t necessarily rid you of your duty to pay some of your bills, even though you filed for bankruptcy. Keep in mind that a bankruptcy filing remains on your credit record for ten years but a bad debt is only supposed to stay on a credit report for seven.

Credit Card Debt and the US Economy

July 8th, 2010

The United States under Obama is just turning the corner as far as recession is concerned. But one factor that had contributed to some extant to the recession and financial crisis is the credit card debt in the USA. In terms of figures the credit cards in circulation are over 1.5 billion for a population of just over 300 million. This is a menacing ratio and translates to a credit card debt of over 600 billion. To this figure if we add the almost million bankruptcies in the United Sates than we can get an idea of how much the United States economy is affected.

America is presently the world’s largest economy though in the near future China may well over take it. But unlike in China in the United States 60 million households do not pay their outstanding balances in full. This are carried forward and classified as unsecured debt. This debt because of the low rate of clearance say 2-4% of the outstanding has resulted in a big economic problem resulting in a huge liability to a lot of people.

The reason for this debt is not hard to seek and has its genesis in the easy availability of credit and secondly the ease by which gambling on the net with credit cards can be affected. At a conservative estimate nearly 3 million Americans could be addicted to gambling. Bear in mind that the cumulative United states national debt is hovering around 5. 7 trillion. This is far exceeded by the total consumer debt of $6.5 trillion and one can imagine what this means. It really spells a very difficult financial situation bordering on a catastrophe.

The situation is compounded with an abysmally low saving rate of the American populace which presently is almost zero. In case one compares this with the saving rate in the eighties when it was around 8.5% then the magnitude of the problem can be understood.

The period of the late 90s of the last century saw immense prosperity for the people. But this was also the period when debt grew because of easy availability of credit. Thus In the period 1989-2001 the debt almost tripled from $ 238 billion to $692 billion. The savings rate declined and bankruptcies rose up by 125%

This massive credit card debt has had a negative effect on the economy. In addition mounting mortgage and consumer debt is crippling the budget of most households. Large bankruptcies have set in like Lehman brothers and GM. The deregulation of Banking has also taken its toll as the real cost of corporate credit (prime rate) has increased only marginally (2.5%-3.0%) yet the real cost of consumer credit card debt has doubled from less than 6% to over 11%. Revolving of credit card debt to the next cycle amounts to nearly $11,000 per household.

To sum up, as things stand the vast US economy may in the years to come buckle downwards if the credit card debt is not reined in.

Credit Card Facts

July 6th, 2010

The average consumer carries around $20,000 worth of credit card debt and pays close $400 a month on that credit card debt. The average interest rate on credit cards in the United States is 15% APR. So if you take the time to figure out the statistics you will find that over the life of your credit card debt you will end up paying back the credit card company $70,003.50 for the $20,000 you borrowed. It would also take you 175 months or 14.58 years to completely payoff your credit card debt.

If you choose to enter into a Debt Settlement program with $20,000 on average your total amount of debt would be reduced to $11,600 including the debt settlement company’s fees. You would end up saving a total of $50,003.50 in interest and a total of $8,400 in your principal balance. Making your grand total savings of $58,403.50! If you continue paying $400 per month in a debt settlement program you will be completely debt free in 33.14 months. Under 3 years!!

Interest rates

Interest rates vary widely. Some credit card loans are secured by real estate, and can be as low as 6 to 12% in the U.S. (2005). Typical credit cards have interest rates between 7 and 36% in the U.S., depending largely upon the bank’s risk evaluation methods and the borrower’s credit history. Brazil has much higher interest rates, about 50% over that of most developing countries, which average about 200% (Economist, May 2006). A Brazilian bank-issued Visa or Mastercard to a new account holder can have annual interest as high as 240% even though inflation seems under control at around 6% per annum (Economist, May 2006). Banco do Brasil offered its new checking account holders Visa and Mastercard credit accounts for 192% annual interest, with somewhat lower interest rates reserved for people with dependable income and assets (July 2005).[citation needed] These high-interest accounts typically offer very low credit limits (USD$40 to $400). They also often offer a grace period with no interest until the due date, which makes them more popular for use as liquidity accounts, which means that the majority of consumers use them only for convenience to make purchases within the monthly budget, and then (usually) pay them off in full each month.

Calculation of interest rates

Most U.S. credit cards are quoted in terms of nominal APR compounded daily, or sometimes (and especially formerly) monthly, which in either case is not the same as the effective annual rate (EAR). Despite the “annual” in APR, it is not necessarily a direct reference for the interest rate paid on a stable balance over one year. The more direct reference for the one-year rate of interest is EAR. The general conversion factor for APR to EAR is EAR=((1+APR/n)^n)-1, where n represents the number of compounding periods of the APR per EAR period. For a common credit card quoted at 12.99% APR compounded daily, the one year EAR is ((1+.1299/365)^365) -1, or 13.87%; and if it is compounded monthly, the one year EAR is ((1+.1299/12)^12) – 1 or 13.79. On an annual basis, the one-year EAR for compounding monthly is always less than the EAR for compounding daily. However, the relationship of the two in individual billing periods depends on the APR and the number of days in the billing period. For example, given 12 billing periods a year, 365 days, and an APR of 12.99%, if a billing period is 28 days then the rate charged by monthly compounding is greater than that charged by daily compounding [ .1299/12 is greater than ((1+.1299/365)^28)-1]. But for a billing period of 31 days, the order is reversed (.1299/12 is less than ((1+.1299/365)^31)). In general, credit cards available to middle-class cardholders that range in credit limit from $1,000 to $30,000 calculate the finance charge by methods that are exactly equal to compound interest compounded daily, although the interest is not posted to the account until the end of the billing cycle. A high U.S. APR of 29.99% carries an effective annual rate of 34.96% for daily compounding and 34.48% for monthly compounding, given a year with 12 billing periods and 365 days.

Bankruptcy Alternatives

July 3rd, 2010

Before you make any decisions about filing bankruptcy make sure you consider all of your options. Here are some alternatives.

1. Judgment proof: This is the most basic alternative. Simply you have to take no action at all. With a very small income, if you owe money to creditors you may be considered as judgment proof also known as collection proof. That means if your creditor sues you, he just won’t be able to collect because you don’t have any thing which they can legally get hold of. So in most of the cases creditors may decide to write off your debts. But you have to keep one thing in mind that if your financial condition gets improved in future then you will not be consider as judgment proof any longer.

2. Call Creditors: Don’t try to shun off from the situations. It is always better to call the creditors and convince them about your financial situations. They may come up with an alternative pre-payment plan which can get you out of this catchy situation.

3. Chalk out the Budget: Before arriving to any decision of filling for bankruptcy, take a good look at your detailed information of monthly income and monthly expenses. This will help you in better understanding of your resources and a more organized way can avoid bankruptcy.

4. Balance Transfer: In some cases you will be able to transfer your loans from higher interest rates to lower ones. You can also apply for a new credit card which can offer low interest rates. But be sure of the introductory lower rates as they do not serve the purpose.

5. Refinancing Loans: If you are credit worthy or in good books of your creditors you can get a refinance with better terms which can help you to clear of the previous debts to higher rates.

6. Negotiations and Settlement: If you are confident enough that this adverse, tricky financial condition is temporary, then with Negotiation and Settlement with your creditors your benefits are higher. In this process you have to negotiate with creditors and work out a new re-payment plan. There are many competent settlement companies that will help you get into the right payment program and help you become debt free in less then 36 months.

7. Credit Counseling Services: Instead of negotiating personally you can contact these agencies which normally are nonprofit organizations and you can found them on United States Trustee’s associated website. These agencies work with the aim of reduction of interest rates or full amount of debt.

8. Individual Voluntary Arrangement: It is a good alternative to bankruptcy. It is a formal proposal by the individual to his creditors to re-pay a percentage of total loans over a certain period of time (in most cases it is usually 5 to 7 years). With this alternative sometimes as much as 60 % of the principal amount is written off. Even monthly payment can be kept very low.

There has been a great increase in number of people choosing the alternatives for bankruptcy of late. As there are many benefits like keeping our own assets, having no effect on professional qualification, no adverse effects on social status and credit scoring; you have to consider all your options carefully before filling bankruptcy.

Harmful effects of Bankruptcy

June 30th, 2010
Lured by the exotic loans or attractive loan schemes, you may sometimes land yourself in a situation where you will lose the balance between your monthly income and monthly expenditure. It is a financial catchy position where you can find it difficult to make your monthly payments. You may be you are thinking about filing Bankruptcy. But did you know, declaring Bankruptcy may not be the last option available. Did you know there are alternatives to Filing Bankruptcy?

Filing for bankruptcy is a difficult decision to make. While filing Bankruptcy can assist you in alleviating your dues and debts, it can also affect you more adversely than you can think of.

  5. Being bankrupt hampers your social life to much extent. It is quite embarrassing situation once your bankruptcy gets advertised in newspaper.

Credit Card Counseling vs. Debt Settlement

June 30th, 2010
It is obvious that credit card debt can hinder your financial success. Eliminating excessive debt sometimes means choosing between seeking credit counseling with a third party or negotiating a settlement directly with the lender.  Both of these alternatives have advantages. It’s important to determine exactly which solution is best for the problem at hand financial planning is complicated, but with a little patience and research it becomes easier to make constructive choices. Of course, each individual must decide what works best in the current economic climate.  Seeking counseling to help reduce or eliminate high interest credit payments can help borrowers resolve debt problems.

Clients pay the credit counseling firms directly, either through consolidation or monthly payments. The agency then takes care of paying the bills. These companies help consumers in several ways. The most important service they provide is skillful negotiation with lenders. Since creditors have widely varying policies, the counselors must be up to date on the most current information. They can then use that information to bargain for a lower interest rate reduced payments, or even consolidation of certain loans. In addition, they can provide advice on budgeting, handling money, and effectively operating in the financial world.

If the situation has progressed, debt settlement becomes a possible option. In this process, the consumer or company representative negotiates to reduce the principal amount of a loan. Although many people do not know about this, it can be done by any borrower. First, the loan must be declared to be in default. This may have happened already if no payments have been made for several months. Once defaulted, a loan becomes a loss to the lender, which means that the lender will often accept a much smaller total amount in order to recover at least some of the money owed. Settling debt will eliminate debt more quickly and efficiently.  Debt Rehab offers the best alternative to bankruptcy available to the consumer.

Getting out from under a financial burden can be the first step to success. Becoming an affiliate of Debt Rehab will allow you to offer seasoned advice on the right personal debt management plan. The best option is dependent on personal preference, financial goals and the current economic climate. Taking all these factors into consideration can help resolve debt problems with a minimum of negative consequences.

Do it Yourself Debt Settlement – The Top Seven Things You Need to Know

March 26th, 2010

Want to get rid of your debt but don’t want to file for bankruptcy or risk foreclosure? If so, debt settlement is an option worth considering. You might think you can’t settle your debt on your own, but the truth is you can do it yourself. There’s no law that says you have to hire a company to handle the debt settlement process. In fact, hiring an outside company usually means paying the company a hefty commission based on the total amount of your debt.

The key to successful debt settlement is negotiation and it’s a skill anyone can learn. Just follow these seven simple steps to do it yourself. Remember when you negotiate, you’re not only reducing the amount you pay individual credit card companies each month. You’re also lowering your total debt by 50 to 80 percent.

Once you start negotiating with creditors you’ll find that settlement amounts will vary. Some may offer as low as 30% and others up to 50%. Some will even forgive most of the amount you owe. Try it and in about six months you’ll be off to a fresh start.

Here are seven debt settlement and creditor negotiation steps you can do yourself:

1) First you need to accumulate a sizable amount of unmanageable debt, which you’ve probably already done since you’re thinking about settling.

2) Next you have to determine that debt settlement is your best option.

3) Once you make that determination, stop making your monthly payments.

4) Take the money you would have spent making those payments and put it into a savings account. Or if you can, try to get a loan with a low or zero percent interest rate from family or friends.
