Credit card delinquencies fall to lowest level since 2002

Drop in credit card delinquencies likely due to the current recession which has caused consumers to manage their finances more carefully and dramatically cut back on spending.

 
PRLog - Jul. 7, 2010 - BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. -- A report released by the American Bankers Association on July 7, 2010 is showing that credit card delinquencies have fallen to the lowest level on record since 2002.  A credit card delinquency is any account that is more than 30 days behind.  The percentage of credit card accounts that are greater than 30 days behind dropped to 3.88% for the first three months of 2010.  This is the first time this key metric has fallen below 4% in 8 years.

The drop in delinquencies is likely due to the current recession which has caused consumers to manage their finances more carefully and dramatically cut back on spending.  Most Americans are trying to de-leverage and cut back on debt wherever they can.  The recent drop in delinquencies is welcome news during a time when there is so much of the economic news is painting a pretty grim picture.

Even with the drop in credit card delinquencies, many Americans are struggling with amounts of revolving debt that are beyond their control.  If you are struggling with too much credit card debt there are options for reducing your debt load without filing for bankruptcy.  Websites like http://www.DebtSimple.com can help you see if debt consolidation is a viable option for you by providing quotes from reputable service providers.
