Credit Card Debt on the Rise


The Debt Management Plan is a credit-safe plan to become debt-free

After a several year decrease in credit card debt balances, consumer credit card usage is on the rise as customers regain confidence in borrowing since the 2008 financial crisis. According to The Wall Street Journal, “U.S. credit-card balances are on track to hit $1 trillion this year.” This is significant because consumer credit reached a peak of 1.02 trillion right before the financial crisis in 2008.
