It can be hard to know where to turn when your finances start to spiral out of control, especially if you have already fallen behind on repayments. A debt management plan can help you get back on track to repaying what you owe.
Designed for people who may be struggling with repaying loans or are seeking help to stay financially afloat, debt management plan is an agreement between you and your creditors or banks, to help you clear your debt as quickly and affordably as possible.
Being chased for money is not a nice experience, once a debt management plan is put in place the calls and letters from your creditors will stop.
It’s possible that the interest charges on your debts can be frozen, letting you concentrate on repaying your debts without the threat of mounting interest.
Once you start a debt management plan, and as long as you keep the monthly repayments up, you should also see your credit score start to improve.
You will make one monthly payment to your plan provider, who then divide the money between your creditors. This way you get peace of mind knowing that your debts are being cleared in an organised way, it also shows your creditors that you are committed to repaying what you owe them.
Generally no, your debt management plan won’t affect the people you live with unless you have joint financial products or joint debts with them. This could be something like a loan, a bank account or any household bills that are in both of your names.
No, a debt management plan is an arrangement based on what you can afford to repay each month. A debt consolidation loan is a separate form of credit you can apply for and take out to pay off debts you already have.
This will depend on how much you owe and to how many creditors, as well as how much you can afford to regularly repay. The more you are able to set aside for your debts, the quicker you’ll repay them - you should only ever repay at a rate you can afford.
