Video: What does charge-off mean?

A charged off or written off debt is a debt that's become seriously delinquent and the lender's given up on being repaid as agreed in the original loan terms. This does not mean that the debt is not still legally valid and collectible. Many times, these debts are transferred to a collection agency who will attempt to recover some or all of the debt.
