Debt Management Plan
A debt management plan provides you with the chance to work alongside a specialist company who would handle the negotiation with your creditors (those who you owe money to) to reduce your monthly payments. This would involve reducing your payments by spreading them out over longer terms. Usually you would pay the company a regular amount of money each month and they would divide this between your creditors on your behalf.
Benefits And Features Of A Debt Management Plan
A debt management plan could benefit you if you have substantial debts that have built up through such as borrowing on credit cards, loans or store cards. We, as a specialist company, will offer impartial advice as to whether a debt management plan is a suitable option for you to take, as opposed to considering one of the other alternatives to breaking free of your debt.
How It Works
Your personal debt manager would sit down with you in the first instance and go through what you have to payout each month. At this stage they would then usually prepare a financial statement and determine a budget. This would lead to determining an affordable and manageable monthly repayment. They would then take the steps needed to contact your creditors on your behalf and negotiate with them. If all goes well and you decide to go ahead with this solution the sum of money agreed would then be distributed by the company to your creditors on your behalf.
Your personalised debt management plan would allow you to pay off your debts within a fixed time, although of course this could take many years, and it would be in your best interest to abstain from further borrowing by way of credit cards or loan.
Although your creditors do not have to agree to lowering the repayments, if you are working with an ethical debt management company and they are negotiating on your behalf they are much more likely to agree than not if it is the only way they would get the money back that you owe them.
However this is only one solution which you could consider when looking to break from debt. There are others to consider before rushing into taking a solution which might be better for your circumstances.
