2. Pay more than just the minimum payment on your credit cards. Work on paying down your debt before you acquire any new debt.

3. Pay your credit card bills before they’re due. This way, more of your money will go toward paying for the month’s purchases instead of interest.

4. Find out if you have any outstanding medical bills. These can significantly drag down your credit score.

5. If your debt has become unmanageable, consider debt consolidation. Talk with us at MCCU and see if we can help!

Personal Loans – our personal loans offer a low fixed or variable rate, with up to 60 months to pay. Learn more about our Personal Loans!
