For most consumers facing financial hardship a Debt Management Program offers the best and most effective solution for credit card
debt relief. Many creditors have hardship programs in place that
offer special repayment plans to customers who undergo financial hardship. These special plans are typically offered through nonprofit Consumer Credit Counseling Services (CCCS) and are referred to as a consumer Debt Management Program.
If you have already decided to enroll in a debt management program simply call toll-free 1800 DEBT.COM (that's 1800-332-8266) for a no obligation FREE debt consultation. A certified debt counselor will discuss your financial situation and will be able to place you with a non-profit debt agency that is suitable for your needs and location.
A Debt Management Program primarily benefits consumers who
have accumulated a minimum
of $5,000 in unsecured credit card debt and are unable to make the required monthly payments. Most credit card debt management programs reduce monthly payments, reduce interest rates, stop late fees and most important, will re-age accounts placed in the program, bringing them in good standing.
A credit card debt management program offers
an opportunity to those enrolled to become debt free in four to five years. Debt relief
is also made possible through savings that may be achieved through interest relief and the process of re-aging accounts, thus eliminating expensive late fees
and other punitive charges.
While there are other options available for debt relief, because debt management programs offered through non-profit Consumer Credit Counseling Services are typically creditor approved, it has been our experience that a credit card debt management program offers the best opportunity to debtors to get a fresh start and get out of debt. To learn more, speak to a debt management company.
It is also important to understand that debtors who are considering filing bankruptcy must first go through an “approved nonprofit budget and credit counseling agency” prior to filing for bankruptcy. Chapter 13 filers must also complete a course in “personal financial management” prior to filing for bankruptcy.
The new Bankruptcy Act of 2005 requires that all consumers seeking protection to complete a bankruptcy counseling session and receive a Certificate of Completion before anything can be filed. This provision ensures that consumers understand all of their financial options, and that they have the necessary knowledge and tools to develop a sound financial plan for their financial future.
There are many changes and requirements in the new bankruptcy act. For example, under the old law, filers had a presumption of eligibility to file under Chapter 7, with the final determination made by judges, who evaluated the specific nature of each bankruptcy. In lieu of this judicial discretion, the new law substitutes a means test to determine whether filers have enough income to pay a portion of their debts, and thus file under Chapter 13. To learn more about the new Bankruptcy Act by reading the Guide To Understanding The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention & Consumer Protection Act.
The bottom line is whether you are seeking debt relief through a Debt Management Program, or through Bankruptcy, you will need to work with aa approved Consumer Credit Counseling Service in order to move forward.
