In what order should I pay off debt

Answered By: Hugh Martin Date: created: Dec 16 2021

The idea behind this strategy is to order the debts by their current balance, with the lowest balance coming first. Once you have them ordered, you make minimum payments each month on all of the debts but the top one on the list, then you make the biggest possible payment you can toward that top debt.

Can paying off collections raise your credit score

Answered By: Harold Young Date: created: Jun 17 2021

What FICO is saying here is that paying off a debt in collections won’t improve your score. In short, paying debts in collection won’t influence your credit score. It may, however, influence a lender who looks beyond your score to its source, which is your credit history.

What happens if I don’t pay my credit card for 5 years

Answered By: Nicholas Miller Date: created: Jul 23 2021

If you don’t pay your credit card bill expect to pay late fees, receive increased interest rates, and incur damages to your credit score. If you continue to miss payments your card can be frozen, your debt could be sold to a collection agency, and the owner of your debt could sue you and have your salary garnished.
