Getting Out of Debt

Getting Out of Debt Trouble

Every different type of debt has its own rules and options for how to make handling the debt easier. In other words — it can be complicated. For example, if you have student loan debt, you might qualify to get that debt discharged completely or to get on an income-based repayment plan. If you have medical debt, you might qualify for "charity care" to cover all or part of the debt.
