6 accounts 5 all under $500 and the other $1,700. how much should i pay at a time?
I want to pay my debt off this year. In all 4800. 5 open accounts(all under $500) for medical and 1 other open account (1700) for a sprint bill but that bill may be more than 7 years already. Is paying too much at once ok? Or should I pay at least $50 on a bill each biweekly payroll.

Are these collection accounts or active accounts? If they are collection accounts, when will they fall off due to the seven year reporting period. Are they within the "Statute of Limitations" to be sued for in your state? If they are old accounts that you cant be sued for and they are within a year or so of falling off your reports, you may want to let them alone. If they will remain on your reports for a while and you want to pay them you need to get a PAY FOR DELETE AGREEMENT for the best results, so do some reading on that. Sometimes collection companies will settle for less than what is owed too, but usually not when doing a "pay for delete" but it can be worth a try. If you need a better answer, please reask your question and be more specific about the status of the accounts.
