Accredited Debt Relief Review

Accredited Debt Relief offers a simple and transparent way to get out of debt.

Accredited Debt Relief creates a path to success for people who are overwhelmed by unsecured debts like credit cards and personal loans. Accredited Debt Relief will customize a debt consolidation plan and work to get you closer to financial freedom. 

Accredited Debt Relief helps clients save money and break the cycle of minimum payments for a faster way out of debt. 

Clients are advised that the program will have a negative impact on their credit score. This impact is temporary, and credit scores usually start recovering as accounts are paid off.

  • Must have $10,000 or more in debt
  • Debt must be unsecured. Accredited Debt Relief are unable to help with  mortgages, federal loans, and other debts that are secured
  • Must be able to prove a steady level of income

How to Apply

Before working with Accredited Debt Relief, all clients must complete an enrollment process that begins with a free consultation call. You can initiate the consultation in two ways:

  • Call the company directly at 800-497-1965
  • Fill out a form on their website 

Consultation Form

I chose to go through the website and click “How Much Can I Save” to complete a consultation form and set up a call to receive a savings estimate and detailed information about my financial relief options. At the moment, a consultation call is required, and a fully digital experience is not available. 

After selecting my debt amount, I was taken to a screen stating that I could obtain a free quote in 30 seconds after adding some basic personal information.

Once I completed this form, I was informed that a debt consolidation expert would be in touch with me to discuss my case in more detail over the phone.

Consultation Call 

I received a call within an hour, which began with some questions about personal details (clients who call directly and do not fill out the online form may be asked for more information at the start of the call.) 

Then, Accredited Debt Relief ran a soft credit pull to evaluate all the options available to me. If you decide to move forward with enrollment, they will send you an email and advise you of the next steps required to finalize your application. Overall, the process was easy, and the debt consolidation expert was very knowledgeable. 

Required Information

Before enrolling with Accredited Debt Relief, make sure you have access to and can provide the following information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Social Security Number
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Monthly Income details and proof of income (e.g., pay stub, W-2 form)
  • Bank statements
  • Employment history
  • Details of your current housing situation
  • Full details of all loans
  • Creditor statements

Application Steps & Time Frames

Accredited Debt Relief’s enrollment process is fast and efficient. After completing an online form which took under a minute, I was called back by a debt  consolidation expert within an hour.

Although enrollment happens quickly, the program timeline requires some patience. There is a waiting period after enrollment which is required before you see results. Rest assured, this waiting period serves a purpose.
