With the help of GreenPath team, I was able in four years to pay off over 40,000 in unsecured debt. I would highly recommend this service to anyone seeking to reduce debt. The team was responsive when I had a question or needed to make a change to my payment plan. I would not have been able to reduce the interest rates for the credit cards without GreenPath because the credit card companies would not work with me.
$40,000 in four years? That is no small feat! Thank you so much for working with GreenPath. We are so glad you found our team responsive and you were pleased with the terms of your program. A HUGE congratulations to you for paying off that debt!Sincerely,

Enrolling with GreenPath went smoothly. The person who worked with me explained the positives and potential drawbacks of their program very well. I thought the services would be a little broader in terms of negotiating with some of the creditors but I learned that it was mostly a process of working with credit card debt and putting it on a payment plan. It created more discipline than I had on my own. I had nothing but good experiences with them. When I called, I got answers right away. While it wasn't always the answer I wanted, it was a direct one with not a lot of runaround. Once or twice the reps may have had to do some research and get back to me. When they did, they got back very quickly and with really direct responses.
GreenPath's services created some discipline around making and it was one less thing I had to worry about every month. The drawback was that by entering into agreements through GreenPath with my creditors, it was negative from from a credit reporting standpoint. It seems that the report was that I'm in a program and I'm 100% drawn against my credit card. I thought that over time my credit score would improve, but it really didn't. There wasn't really a way to improve it without breaking the program. The rep told me that my credit score would improve in time because I wouldn't be showing up as being 100% utilized on my credit cards.
It is important to us that our clients not only succeed in paying off debts, but also gain skills to ensure continued financial wellness! It sounds like that is exactly what happened for you and we are so glad to hear it.
Thank you for your positive review!Sincerely,

I started with Consumer Credit Counseling in 2011 and was eventually picked up by GreenPath. At that time, I was in a financial mess. I had credit cards, store credit cards, and items in collection that were taking a toll on me. I became depressed and upset with every phone call from a debtor. I used to hate when the time came for them to start calling me. I scoured the internet looking for companies and had connected with one in Boston, MA. I needed someone local and ran across Consumer Credit Counseling. It changed my life. My first appointment, I noticed a huge jar on the floor, it was nearly full of shredded credit cards.
After setting things up with my credit counselor, I was asked to shred mine. I did and became liberated from that moment on. I had a plan to get me out of this debt that had overtaken me. They halted the phone calls from my creditors and I was able to see balances paid off. To say that I was thrilled is an understatement. I continued in this program and this past June, I paid off my last one to a finance company. I truly am grateful to God for this service and how it changed my life. If you are in over your head with debt, reach out to Greenpath. I promise you they will make you feel that you have the support you need to get out of this and stay out. I have one credit card now that I am managing as I have learned my lesson. Thank you GreenPath! You are a lifesaver!
Wow, what a powerful exercise, to shred up all your credit cards. Putting the idea of becoming debt free into action must have been quite an experience!
CONGRATULATIONS on finishing up the program. We will miss you as a client, but we are so happy that you are free from that burdensome debt and that you have learned how to manage with minimal cards.
Thank you for being our client!Sincerely,

GreenPath was awesome. I had an old debt that was in collection status and I needed a little help with it. I heard about GreenPath through an old co-worker that was using them as well. She said it took her about two years to get back on her feet, and they did just that. I called GreenPath's number and they asked questions just to get an idea of what type of debt I had and the amount. They explained to me the amount that they worked with which is $300 and more. Everything under that, I would have to make arrangements with myself. I did, one creditor at a time, and I paid it off that way. Once they got all of my bills together and had my income information, they did a little math and came up with what would be comfortable for me every month. The payment came out of my account every month automatically. They took it from there and distributed it to all the creditors.
They were very professional and answered all my questions. They were there when I needed them. I worked with several representatives and I was impressed by how quick they were in gathering everything, doing that initial call, and giving me an idea of what it would be monthly. The phone call lasted maybe 20 minutes and that was really cool. However, the queues are backed up when you call so you have a little bit of a wait. But then they do have the function or the option to put whatever number for them to call you back. That works too.
We are so pleased to have given you such a positive experience. It sounds like everything went just according to plan for your Debt Management Program!
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help you in the future - we truly appreciate having you as a client!Sincerely,

My previous relationship got me into some deep debt and it was kinda hard to get out of by myself so I looked for some guidance and some debt management. GreenPath was very helpful and cutting the interest rate was huge. I was able to manage it, and they worked with me to come up with a plan to do so. They set me up a fine and manageable payment plan because they listened to what I had, they looked over my bills at that time and worked with me. They didn’t leave me in such a bind to where I couldn't eat. I was pretty limited, but I knew into going to it. They didn’t put me in a pinch to where it was that uncomfortable.
In the beginning, my interactions with their reps were great. The guy who helped me set up everything was fine. He was very thorough and made sure everything was in order. There were no hitches along the way and I very seldom had to call for anything. But towards the end, I was calling often because I was paying off a lot more than what my normal was and I took the initiative to tell them to take out extra deposits. I had to deal with a different rep every time because it was like a call center. So, sometimes it works and sometimes it didn’t, but most of the time, it did. Some people were ready to talk fast and move on to the next person.
I also got a few instances that they wanted to do what they wanted to do versus what I wanted to do with my money. But other than that, it all worked out. I had access to them whenever I needed and luckily, I didn’t hit anything along the way because everything kept working out fine. I would recommend GreenPath. They were a big relief because they did the payments and did the work. They took out money, so I was aware of it each month and I just kept watching the balance go down. They gave me peace of mind and it added comfort just knowing I wasn’t the only one dealing with the problem anymore. It was a big weight off someone’s shoulders.
Debt can be so overwhelming. I am very happy that we were able to help you pay it off in a manageable way. That is just how the program is supposed to work! Congratulations on completing the program!Leah Darland

I was having financial issues and I needed to consolidate all my credit card debts so I could pay it off. I tried to go with another company first but one of my credit card companies wouldn’t deal with them. They told me to go with GreenPath and it worked out for me. There were a lot of forms that I had to download and then upload to them, but they made everything pretty simple. I just filled it out, the accounts, and I sent in statements from the credit cards that I had at the time. They walked me through whatever I needed to do. Then when I was getting close to paying one off, they'd send me a letter to doublecheck with the credit card to make sure it was off. It was a good experience.
I basically owed more in credit cards and I was paying off nothing. When I first started, I’d have to pay $1,400 a month for credit cards debt and I was just barely paying the minimum. Then, when I consolidated with GreenPath and they canceled it and renegotiated, it got it down to where it was bearable. It was at $450 every two weeks. The cost was reasonable and it was good compared to some that I've seen out there. I've paid off all that credit card debt. I'm not completely debt-free ‘cause I have a couple of open credit cards at the moment, but I feel more secure and everything is taken care of.
Congratulations on completing your Debt Management Program! I am so glad to hear that you had a good experience with us. Very best of luck to you going forward and please get in touch if you need any further assistance.Leah Darland

GreenPath helped me as well as my daughter to get our lives back on track. We are so thankful that there are services like this to help consumers to pay off debts and learn how to manage their finances better. Now that I have gotten a taste of financial freedom I'm going to cherish it. Way to go GreenPath!
At first I thought I made a mistake because there is a little time to get the program working. Because I was in debt I was nervous. The agents were very comforting and I never came across anyone that I felt did not know what they were doing. Once my creditors were on board and payments were being made and I could finally breath easy I knew this was a terrific program. I actually completed the program early because I added to the monthly payments when I can. I wish I would have tried this much earlier instead I used my house for a piggy bank which created the worst of problems. Today I rid myself of credit cards except one with little to no balance and it feels good... TY Greenpath! I have already referred a friend of mine to you.
Easy to work with any questions they helped you figure out the answers too. They helped call the credit companies to verify amount left on credit cards. You had a web site to help verify your info. Plus they had classes you can take if you want too. To help you better prepare yourself for the future.
GreenPath helped me to plan and reach financial wellness and now I am debt free. Although it took 4.5 year working with GreenPath and creating a monthly budget, I was able to reach my goal. I would recommend GreenPath to anyone who wants financial freedom.
I was very satisfied overall with the customer service. Every time I had a question I was helped and guided throughout my experience paying my debt. They followed up with me every time an account was paid in full. I was sent emails to let me know in case they weren't able to talk to me.
