I am working with a debt consolidation company to merge my debts into a single monthly payment. They're asking me to close down accounts. Should I do that? Or shouldn't I?

But  I would recommend you not to close your credit card accounts as this hurts your credit score.

Yes, usually consolidation companies ask consumers to close accounts. They even ask you to refrain from opening new credit card accounts until you're debt free.
