Consolidation Loans - Steve Welker and Company Inc.

Consolidation Loans

We’ll help you find the right debt relief option whether it’s credit counselling, debt consolidation, debt settlement, a consumer proposal, or bankruptcy.

Is a Consolidation Loan right for you?

Consolidation loans consolidate all of your debts into once single payment, and sometimes reduce interest.

We get calls everyday from individuals asking for consolidation loans, when a consolidation loan isn’t what they need.

Consolidation Loans are the answer when:

  • You are struggling to juggle multiple debt payments
  • You can afford to repay ALL of your debt PLUS interest
  • You have an income and credit score that will allow you to qualify for a low interest Consolidation Loan

We recommend against taking on high interest consolidation loans charging interest in excess of 10%.

Use our payment calculator to estimate what you might end up paying for a Consolidation Loan should you qualify.

The reality is that many people who are interested in a consolidation loan would be better served by a Consumer Proposal. A Consumer Proposal is appropriate when:

  • You can’t qualify for a low interest consolidation loan due to your income or credit score
  • Even after consolidation, the consolidated loan payment is unaffordable
  • You can’t afford to repay ALL of your debts PLUS interest

A Consumer Proposal:

  • Doesn’t require any minimum credit score, and is therefore easy to qualify for
  • Consolidates your debt into one single payment, just like a consolidation loan
  • Stops Interest – Not low interest, but NO interest
  • Allows you to repay less than you owe
  • Protects you from your creditors meaning no more collection calls, or wage garnishments
  • Costs nothing to start

When you speak to one of our Licensed Insolvency Trustees we’ll analyze your entire situation including your assets, debt, budget, and family situation. Based upon this assessment your Licensed Insolvency Trustee can help you decide whether or not a Consolidation Loan, Consumer Proposal, or other debt solution might be appropriate.

Some of us face personal financial crisis during our lives. We may be able to solve some money problems ourselves, but sometimes we need professional help. The situation may have gradually worsened over time, or happened suddenly because of a job loss, serious illness, divorce, or other major life event.

Whatever the cause, if you’re struggling with debt, you have options. Recognize the danger signals.

You may have a debt problem if:

  • You’re always behind on your bills or their constantly overdue
  • You’re relying on borrowing to balance your monthly budget
  • You have other debts, that when combined with your overdue bills, are resulting in a budget shortfall
  • Creditors and collection companies call you, threaten to sue, or have obtained a wage garnishment
