Reviews explain how New Era's representatives go above and beyond for clients. Customers love the company's approachable and helpful representatives. Many also like how New Era's representatives help customers deal with creditor phone calls.

No Minimum Debt Requirement

New Era Debt Solutions does not have a set minimum debt requirement. Many competitors have a requirement of $5k to $10k in unsecured debt. 

The Bad

  • Lacking AFCC Accreditation
  • Limited Availability

Lacking AFCC Accreditation

The website makes no mention of being accredited with AFCC. While the site displays an IAPDA accreditation, this is just one of several important accreditations.

Limited Availability

New Era practices in 17 states but works with the Consumer First Legal Network in many other states. However, its services are not available nationwide. A list of available locations can be found on the company's website. 

The Bottom Line

New Era Debt Solutions offers a free consultation and debt counseling in Spanish. In addition to debt settlement, it offers other debt relief services. The company is accredited with the IAPDA but not the AFCC. Though the company does not have a minimum debt requirement, its services are not available in every state. Interested consumers can use a free consultation to determine if New Era Debt Solutions is right for them.

    These guys are the real deal! I was super impressed with their professionalism, thoroughness, knowledge, and communication. Alex, Tony and the rest of the team were able to save me thousands of dollars (they settled my debt less than 50 cents on the dollar INCLUDING their fees). They know what they're doing, are patient in explaining the process (it's very involved and you need to trust them. If you do, you'll be rewarded) and answered all my skeptical questions. You'll be SO thankful you went with New Era to handle your debt settling needs!

    Alex and his entire staff at New Era have been awesome to work with and are always available to listen to my concerns and issues. Although I was not able to complete the program due to personal issues they went above and beyond to help me and I would give them my highest recommendation for people in serious financial trouble as I was. Unfortunately I had to stop before I got rid of some of my worst debt but I had no choice. I am retired living on social security and they did not judge me or belittle me for my problems like other companies I checked into before deciding on New Era. They genuinely care about everyone's situation and handle it accordingly. Do not even look any further if you are needing help with your debt. They will plan a program designed for you. They do not just rubber stamp everyone for the same program. The staff is superb and I wished my circumstances had turned out differently.

    When we were looking for New Era, the first place we pulled some stuff off was in ConsumerAffairs and that helped us in our decision to go with them. When my husband and I started last December, New Era said the program would be about three years but we're looking right at a year and a half because we've accelerated our payments. We called them, they explained to us how the program worked and we signed up with them. They took care of all of our accounts for us. What I've been happy about was that they were able to get the companies to not contact us right away. So, we haven't had all the phone calls. Actually, I believe every single one of our accounts is settled now. We're just paying out what's left. The cost might be a little bit high though. But, we were so eager to get out of debt. I had no time to devote to taking care of all that myself. So, it's been nice to have somebody there to be able to do it for me and not have the worry on my shoulders. So, the extra cost was worth it because I didn't have to deal with the companies. I've enjoyed working with them. I love how the rep has been available. Any time I need him, I can much call and get a hold of him within 24 hours. And they're always good and accommodating. When we've had to lower our payments one month, or raise our payments another month, they've always been so good to work with us on that. We're not quite out of the program yet but we're getting near the end. So, we're very excited to be done with it soon. If anybody were to ask us and say they're in debt, I would tell them to call New Era because they've done it for us and I think they'll do it for them, as well
