The use of credit cards begin with a benign notion of being able to buy the things you are hoping or wishing to own as soon as possible. Letâs assume that you are going to pay it back before you incur interest on it. Consumer credit card debt management provides a solution for it. Home mortgages, car loans, multiple credit cards set up a lifestyle which is very difficult to get out of. God forbid then if anything happens to suddenly cut off or lower your income drastically. A sudden realization of life mired in debt will then force you to look at debt management â a topic already being introduced in many educational institutions today.
Shopping around for a debt settlement company and having decided on one, the first thing your certified credit counselor does is send out proposals with the new repayment plan to each of your creditors. The initial phase comprising at least 3 timely repayments is necessary for your proposals to be accepted and for receiving creditor benefits.
How does a program for debt management work?
A DMP proposes to help you by
- Negotiating lower interest rates
- Gets late fees waived
- Arbitrates a schedule acceptable to you and your creditors
- Consolidates your monthly payments
Be out of debt in 3 â 5 years
Once on the DMP, check and review your monthly statements very carefully. Insure that creditors are granting all your benefits as they will reflect there. Make sure that all creditors are receiving your credit for payments made through your consumer debt management agency to managing credit card debts. Under a DMP you will receive â an estimate of time duration needed to complete your DMP, a list of all that you owe, each creditorâs amount owed, each creditorâs proposed payment and the approximate number of months needed to pay off the debt with regular full payments. This timeline serves as a motivational tool, a goal to aim for and every month shows you how close you are to success.
