Debt Consolidation in Hawaii

Hawaii MapHawaii, or the “Aloha State” provides a full-time home for well over a 1,000,000 residents. While the income of those citizens is approximately 22% greater than the national average, the cost of living and average amount of debt per household is much higher.

The recent downturn in the U.S. economy had a significant impact on Hawaii residents and their jobs. With the majority of Hawaii’s employment in the hospitality and tourism fields, the financial hit resulted in many lost jobs and careers for residents. Several debt consolidation companies work with Hawaii residents to help them improve their financial outlook.

During the recession, many residents relied on credit cards and loans to make ends meet. However, in recent times several Hawaiian Islands are now seeing an increase in tourism and money back in the pockets of businesses and their employees. The result is that many people are now working again but are left with debt that they can’t pay off. The idea of planning for the future is bleak for those that are only able to make the minimum payments each month.

Hawaii follows the federal laws dealing with collection agencies that are known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. A number of debt consolidation companies exist today that are familiar with those practices and how they apply to Hawaii residents that are looking to improve their financial future. Debt consolidation is one option to minimize credit card balances and lower monthly obligations.
