I’ve Got Payday Loans While in My Debt Management Program. – Jim

“Dear Steve,

I’ve been in a debt management program for about 2 years. During the last couple years I have also got over my head in e-pay day loans. My wife has gone from a $17/hr full time job to $7.75 part time job.

Best way to get out from under about $5000 in pay day loans.

I’d suggest you use the free How to Get Out of Debt Calculator to review your options.

      The logical way to deal with this would be to find an unsecured debt consolidation loan from a group like or

      Alternatively, since you can easily afford the payments you could simply prioritize your repayment to minimize the cost. Think about looking at a free service like
