Overall Rating: 8.9 / 10 (Excellent)

Unlike many of the other companies in the debt consolidation business, SoFi is not primarily a debt consolidator. Rather, it offers a wide variety of loans, some of which may be used for consolidation. The company does not do debt settlement negotiations, bankruptcy, or debt counseling. However, SoFi is a strong choice for those who have decided to consolidate higher-interest debts into one lower-interest obligation. Its reputation in making such loans is excellent and and additional financial services the company provides are enticing.

Qualification

Qualification - 9 / 10

SoFi makes personal, unsecured loans to people, who then can use that money for whatever purpose they wish--including the consolidation of other loans and outstanding bills. Loans can be taken out for anywhere between $5,000 and $100,000 for terms of 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 years. To qualify, prospective customers must create an account by supplying their full names and states of residence. Customers then fill out a second form with detailed information about their addresses, phone numbers, work histories, educational background, birthdate, and citizenship. SoFi checks their credit history, but claims that it does so in a way that will not depress a client's score. Customers then receive a rate quote that depends on the data they submit. If the customer agrees to the rate quote, SoFi then requests a full credit report and notes that this step may have a temporary negative impact on a person's credit score.
