    What is Citizens Debt Relief?

    Citizens Debt Relief is a debt settlement company. This means it helps customers negotiate settlements with creditors to lessen or eliminate their debts for less than the original amount owed. The company does this by working directly with debtors to find a reasonable price or solution that seems fair to both parties.

    Usually, this requires clients to make monthly payments to a trust account with Reliant account management, an FDIC-insured savings account provider. The money in this account accrues until you have enough to pay for a settlement.

    How does Citizens Debt Relief work?

    With Citizens Debt Relief, you first go through a free consultation where the company’s debt specialists help you see if you’re a good candidate for debt settlement. If the debt is too high or if saving for a settlement is unrealistic, Citizens Debt Relief might not take your case. However, if the debt specialist deems your situation a good fit, they figure out a plan of attack for your unsecured debts.

    The Citizens Solution is the company’s step-by-step approach to debt resolution. It includes:

    • Establishing a monthly payment plan
    • Creating a savings account with a Citizens Debt Relief partner
    • Communicating with creditors
    • Negotiating a lower rate

    Clients usually see their first settlement after four to seven months in the program, but you can expect the entire program to take two to four years. This process typically reduces clients’ original debts by 40% to 60%.

    How much does Citizens Debt Relief cost?

    Citizens Debt Relief claims to have flexible pricing, but its website is not transparent about its rates. Regardless, the company does not charge any fees until it has successfully reduced your enrolled debt. Reach out to the company for a free consultation to get a better idea of what debt resolution may cost you.
