After moving out to California, I injured myself pretty badly and ended up not working for two years. Needless to say, my credit cards went through the roof. Last year, I enrolled in a dmp program and I pay $1,222 per month - it kills me, but through careful budgeting and extra money each month from tutoring, I think I can live with it. I have paid for over 1 year so far, almost 4 more years to go.
The big problem - my student loans are current in deferment due to economic hardship. I can put them into forbearance for 2 more years, but I have almost 4 more years left of my DMP! I have a big problem on the horizon. What the !@#$ should I do? Should I have just gone the debt settlement route?
I've thought about some type of 2nd income stream - but now I'm actually watching the get rich from derivatives things on TV. I would just love to complete my DMP, then tackle the student loan. This is such a pain in the ass. What should I do, or at least investigate?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
