Our Debt Management Service

Navigating financial difficulties presents numerous options to consider. Seeking the guidance of a knowledgeable, non-profit credit counselor can be highly beneficial. They can impartially assess all your debt consolidation alternatives, provide appropriate advice and guidance, and assist in formulating a plan to overcome your challenges. Gaining clarity on your path forward allows you to reclaim peace of mind and move forward with confidence, following your devised plan.

Who Needs Our Assistance?

If you’re seeking assistance with debt, the most effective way to determine if a Debt Management Program (DMP) suits your needs is to consult with a non-profit credit counseling organization, such as ours. Our credit counselors will only recommend a DMP if they believe it aligns with your unique financial situation. Consequently, when enrolled in a DMP, you can have confidence that you are on the right path.

If a DMP is deemed suitable for your circumstances and you choose to proceed, we make every effort to support your success in paying off the debt swiftly. This involves endeavors to significantly reduce or entirely waive your interest rates, providing guidance in establishing a budget tailored to your needs, and offering any necessary financial or debt counseling throughout the process.

Debt Management Service Coverage

Similar to various debt consolidation methods, a Debt Management Program (DMP) is applicable only to unsecured debts—those for which you haven’t provided collateral. This limitation exists because creditors have no incentive to accept a reduced amount for your debt when they could potentially recover more by selling the collateral. If the majority of your debts are secured, a DMP may offer limited assistance. However, if the majority of your debts are unsecured, a DMP could be the suitable solution for your needs.

How Our Program Works

Initiating a Debt Management Program (DMP) begins with reaching out to us. Whether you make a phone call, reach us through online chat, or send an email, our team will inquire about your situation, provide information about our services, and explore how we can support you. If you inquire about our DMP, we’ll gladly schedule a confidential appointment for you. During this appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with a licensed credit counselor either in person or by phone, at a time that suits your convenience.

During the appointment, your credit counselor will assess your financial situation to determine the suitability of a Debt Management Program (DMP) for you. If it is deemed appropriate and you decide to enroll in the program, the counselor and their support team will engage in negotiations with your creditors. The objective is to consolidate all your unsecured debt payments into a single monthly payment.

The monthly payment will be customized to align with what you can afford, taking into account your budget. Frequently, the interest rate will be significantly reduced or reduced to 0. You’ll submit the monthly payment to us, and we will distribute it proportionally to each of your creditors.

On average, individuals typically finish a Debt Management Program (DMP) in approximately 3 years, although you’ll have up to 5 years if necessary. Upon the successful completion of your DMP, you will officially achieve debt-free status. Our ongoing support will continue, offering assistance, including a credit rebuilding program designed to expedite your approval for new loans, such as a mortgage. Notably, all records of the DMP and debts settled through it will be expunged from your credit report two years after its completion. This ensures that you can move forward with your life without concerns about past matters resurfacing in dealings with future employers or others, as you have effectively addressed and resolved them.

Cost and Considerations

To cover administrative expenses, non-profit credit counseling organizations impose a modest fee for their repayment programs. Our fee structure operates on a sliding scale, with a cap set at $75 per month. Your counselor will provide a comprehensive explanation of this scale as you explore the best option for your situation. In essence, a Debt Management Program (DMP) is designed to save you money, as it entails significantly lower interest payments, and the structured payments ensure your debt is repaid within a specified timeframe, making them more manageable.

A Debt Management Program (DMP) does not alter the entities to which you owe debts; instead, it consolidates your monthly payments. Furthermore, it reduces or eliminates the interest imposed by your creditors moving forward. If, for any reason, your DMP proves unsuccessful, your debt payments will revert to their pre-DMP arrangement, potentially incurring penalties or interest from your creditors. However, we only initiate a DMP when we are confident in its likelihood of success. In the event of unexpected changes in your situation, we will collaborate with you to devise a new plan and, if necessary, renegotiate with your creditors. Throughout the process, we are committed to providing unwavering support every step of the way.

While a DMP does impact your credit report until two years after its completion, this outcome is more favorable than allowing your debts to perpetually hinder your credit rating. Attaining freedom from debt is the quickest route to a stable financial future, and a DMP serves as an effective means to achieve this objective.
