If you have an outstanding collection balance, you may qualify for a payment plan. 

If you are interested in learning what your collection balance can be reduced to and what your payment options are, complete the Customer Information/Application for Settlement Form and return it to American Bottoms.  Once we receive this information, we will run your collections account through the Settlement Algorithm to determine your payment options.  If your account qualifies for a settlement, we will mail you an Offer Letter with your options.  It's that easy to start the process.
