VA Military Debt Consolidation
Military debt consolidation loans work similarly to cash-out refinances. If you own a home, you are able to refinance that loan for a higher amount to cover the debt. Upon closing, that additional money is pulled out and given to you. You then have paid off debt with higher monthly payments.
Note that you don’t have to have an existing VA loan presently to qualify.
For example, if your current home loan balance is $150,000 and you need $20,000 to cover existing debt from credit cards, delinquent taxes, or college tuition payments, your loan would be refinanced to $170,000 plus any financed closing costs. You would receive the $20,000 and your new mortgage payment would reflect the new loan amount of $170,000 plus financed closing costs. You can use these kinds of loans to pay off any type of debt or personal loan.
