"There are many possible ways to go about getting out of debt, but only a handful of strategies will accelerate your debt elimination plans and get you out of debt sooner rather than later," says Judy Sorensen, president of the Association of Credit Counseling Professionals (ACCPros).
To help consumers nationwide, Sorensen and the experts from ACCPros offer the following 5 best strategies to pay off debt in 2015:
"When you have debts you can't handle, especially credit card bills that are out of control, that's a sign you need to lay off the credit cards at least for a while until you get your finances back in order," says Sorensen.
2. Move Beyond Minimum Payments
"It's very difficult to get out of debt quickly if you're only making minimum payments," says Sorensen. She points out that banks set minimum payment amounts at just one or two percent of your outstanding balance.
"You might get a windfall from any source," says Sorensen. It could be your income tax refund check, or maybe a bonus or a raise from your job. While it may be tempting to spend those funds, "anytime you get additional cash, you should use that money to reduce debt. You won't regret it," she adds.
"Not only do we educate consumers we work with about proper budgeting and cash management, we can also negotiate with their creditors on their behalf," says Sorensen.
"It simplifies life and gives the consumer greater control," Sorensen says, adding: "Consolidating your debt can often lower your overall monthly payment too, giving you some financial breathing room."

"The list of financial abuses that ..., 2 May 2014 [cached]
"The list of financial abuses that military families face is downright appalling," says Judy Sorensen, president of theAssociation of Credit Counseling Professionals, ACCPros. "On a daily basis, many deal with harassing phone calls from debt collectors, predatory lending traps and wrongful foreclosures on their homes, not to mention widespread problems with student loans. This is the last thing our service men and women need after they've been out fighting for our safety and freedoms."
To help combat these problems, Sorensen and the experts at ACCPros offer four tips to military members facing financial difficulties, especially with student loans.
Tip#1: Know your legal rights
"Part of the problem is that many U.S. servicemembers simply don't know that they have various military protections to help them in areas such as their mortgages and student loans," says Sorensen.
So Sorensen urges military members to report wrongful doing to the authorities, like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
"Statistics show that four out of 10 U.S. service men and women are now repaying student loans, and the average amount borrowed is about $26,000, so this is a major issue that must be addressed," Sorensen says.
So if you qualify for loan cancellation, Sorensen suggests supplying a copy of your DD214 (discharge form) and a letter requesting a discharge to your loan servicer.
