If you have already agreed a debt management plan but are now struggling to make the agreed payments, or feel it no long suits your situation, then it’s time to consider your options.
Is your debt management plan right for you?
When you entered into the debt management plan it may have been, or seemed, the best solution at the time. These plans are a good option if your debt is likely to be repaid over a short period, debts are unsecured loans and you have extra money each month to pay towards your debts. However, you may need to reconsider your current arrangements if:
Can you alter a debt management plan?
Debt management plans are not legally binding contracts so you can discuss reviewing the payment terms with the provider. However, their continuation needs the support of your creditors so changes to an agreed plan should be done only after proper consideration.
Take time to review your budget to ensure you are working towards a realistic repayment solution and be aware that cancelling your plan may incur a charge and any fees paid may not be refunded.
Are there alternatives to your debt management plan?
If your debt management plan is no longer working it’s important to act straight away, especially if you’re starting to miss payments. It is in no one’s interest for the repayment plan to fail, so as long as you are talking to the provider it may be possible to renegotiate your monthly payments under the debt management plan.
If, instead, you’re considering cancelling your debt management plan you will need to ensure you have an alternative way to repay debts. There are several ways to manage debts and some solutions may help reduce the amount of debt to be repaid.
It’s advisable to seek expert advice regarding debt management to understand the requirements and implications of each option so that you can find the one that’s right for your circumstances and become debt free as quickly as possible.
