Can You Consolidate With More Then One Loan?

Dec 14, 2007
Debt consolidation is something that many people today feel they need to do to help ease their financial troubles, and often times, that is the best solution. Often, you will discover that too many credit cards and other types of loans are weighing you down, making it difficult to handle that many at one time. Debt consolidation can help with this because it takes all of your debts and combines them into one.

But what if you have so many loans to consolidate that if you put all of them together, you would owe money on the consolidation loan for the rest of your life? Having too many smaller loans with high interest rates to keep track of can be stressful, cost you extra money, and can many times be bad for your credit. However, one loan, even with a low interest rate, can be extremely difficult to manage as well. So how do you consolidate with more than one loan?

Debt consolidation is basically just paying off all of your debtors by taking out a big loan. That way, you only owe one creditor with one low interest rate rather than a whole bunch of creditors with a whole bunch of varying interest rates that really add up to be quite a bit. If you combine all of your debt into one, it generally just makes it easier.

However, if you do not want to consolidate your debt into just one loan, you don't have to. If you want to take out more than one loan to pay off your other bills, that's okay too. That way, you will have the luxury of fewer payments to make and lower interest, but you are able to avoid the discomfort of having one large amount of money owed to one lender.

This is beneficial for the future if you make late payments, because only one of your consolidation loan interest rates will go up on a smaller balance. Because you do not have so much money to pay on that one account, the raised interest rate will not take such a huge chunk of money as it would have if you had only one large balance. Making late payments is never something you should plan to do, but thinking realistically of your ability to pay your loans in the future will be beneficial to you if it ever does happen.

When consolidating your debt, you are not obligated to consolidate ALL of your balances into that specific loan. You can choose the specific debts that you want consolidated, whether it be all, half, or only a few of them. Because of this, you can get more than one consolidation loan, with your numerous smaller debts consolidated into only a few larger debts. Taking out more than one loan to consolidate your bills can be beneficial because it keeps many of your debts separate, but allows you the lower interest rates and the relief of fewer bills that many of people are most looking for in debt consolidation.
