Hi, and welcome back.

Are you borrowing from retirement funds, or withdrawing completely? And are they official retirement funds (401(k), IRA) or money you have set aside for withdrawal?

How much money do you normally have to pay toward the cards? Is there anyway you can budget more toward the payoff?

I always feel anxious when people say they're taking retirement funds to pay for something. If there's any way you can avoid doing that, or at least cut way down on the amount you remove, it would be better.
