How does debt settlement work?

Debt settlement comes into play only when you have many late or skipped payments and possibly collections accounts. A creditor or collector is not going to accept less than you owe if there’s reason to believe you could pay the full amount that you originally agreed to.

Debt settlement companies negotiate with creditors to reduce what you owe, mostly on unsecured debt such as credit cards. It’s not an option for certain types of debt, such as a house that can be foreclosed on or a car that can be repossessed.

Settlement offers work only if it seems you won’t pay at all, so you stop making payments on your debts. Instead, you open a savings account and put a monthly payment there. Once the settlement company believes the account has enough for a lump-sum offer, it negotiates on your behalf with the creditor to accept a smaller amount.
