Helping others with their debt is our mission
In Dec 2007 when the Great Recession began we recognized people need help. Family and friends were struggling to make minimum payments. Once we successfully helped them we knew we wanted to help more, that now is United Debt Settlement. Our mission is to help others with their debt. To do that we provide financial advice and education which often helps reduce debt for those struggling financially.
Values, Commitment, and Reputation
We believe in transparency and communication, that’s why we built a customized portal for every client. Any progress is securely recorded in your account, that’s our values. We do not charge fees for personal debt before it is settled and our whole team is IAPDA licensed, that is our commitment. We do business ethically, in a way that relates to moral principles, and that is our reputation.
We consist of hard-working people on a mission to help others face their debt. We are proud to have resolved debts for over 10,000 clients and stay true to our mission.
