What does J.G. Wentworth debt relief do?

J.G. Wentworth assists people with unsecured debts, primarily credit card debt, medical debt and personal loan debt. To get started with the company's debt relief program, visit its website and fill out the online contact form. You need to provide basic personal information, including:

  • Your amount of debt
  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • Your phone number

J.G. Wentworth uses this information to determine whether you qualify for its debt relief program. If you qualify, one of its debt relief representatives reaches out to discuss your circumstances and create a no-obligation quote that’s personalized for your situation.

Once you accept the terms of its debt settlement program, J.G. Wentworth helps you create a dedicated account to store your monthly deposits. You pay into this account each month instead of making minimum payments on your debt. While you’re growing your account, J.G. Wentworth’s representatives work with your creditors to negotiate a settlement with each of your creditors.

How much does J.G. Wentworth debt relief cost?

J.G. Wentworth charges anywhere from 9% to 15% of your total debt amount. However, fees vary based on state regulations and the details of your situation, so make sure to ask a representative about any extra charges. The company does not charge a fee until it has successfully resolved a debt on your behalf.

How long does J.G. Wentworth’s debt relief program take?

Although the program length varies, J.G. Wentworth states that the average individual can pay off their debt within 24 to 48 months of starting the debt relief program. We recommend asking a representative how long the program took for people in similar situations to yours.

I feel as though a weight has been lifted and now I can breathe. I have been given a new lease on life and I plan to make the best of it. I was looking at approximately ten years before I would have the chance to be debt free. Now in less than half that time I will be able to accomplish my goal.

    Connor ** your debt resolution specialist was most helpful, courteous and professional. He was very patient and informative in guiding me to make this difficult decision. He assured me this process with creditors will be handled in the best manner. I trust him and he should be valued as a great asset to your firm. Thank you.

    First off the whole process was well navigated and user friendly. I recommend J.G. Wentworth for financial solutions. However the client team for start up and the ongoing process were very helpful, transparent and professional. They reach out and guide you in every step. And that is the peace of mind I was looking for!

    We finally decided we needed some help. I checked into other options then I went on line to investigate. I found J.G. Wentworth is listed on the BBB. Others weren't. Dave explained everything on the first phone call. I was very impressed with what he told me and answered the questions for me that I had. He didn't rush thru it like most. Asked what was going on and I explained about my health the last 3 1/2 years. He recommended this program for us. It has been a weight lifted off my shoulders since we signed the documents. Now we just make one payment and they take care of the rest. They are always there for me and I have reached out to them already. Overall, yes I would recommend them.
