Credit card debt rate increases as economy strengthens

As the national economy works to continue rebounding, Oregon residents also look to the state and local pictures for signs of ongoing improvement. During the recessionary years, many people throughout Oregon were hit hard by credit card debt, unemployment, medical expenses and more. Some people chose to file for bankruptcy, others worked with creditors to identify acceptable payback options. Still more struggled with delinquent payments and high interest charges. Ironically, credit card debit is associated with both financial challenges and a healthy economy.

Many Americans weighted down by healthcare costs

While news stories in all various media report on the growing rebound of our nation’s economy, many Oregonians and their counterparts in other states continue to struggle financially. Loss of employment, divorce and medical expenses are just some of the top concerns that leave people still looking for help to what can feel like unmanageable debt and situations.

Some states see drop in foreclosure filings

Economic challenges have plagued many Oregon residents, especially since the recession began. Even with some signs that the economy is rebounding, many people continue to struggle and face ongoing threats of repossession, wage garnishment, bankruptcy or more. Asset forfeiture can affect a person’s ability to keep a car, a home or any other type of personal property that has some real value.

2014 targeted as year to pay off credit cards for many Americans

Oregonians, like their counterparts in other states, have felt the financial challenges of the recent years. While our nation continues to struggle to recover from the latest recession, individual citizens remain committed to repairing their financial health as well. For some people, concerns about credit card debt are at the top of their list for what areas they wish to focus on in this New Year.
