Interest rate negotiation is one of the most important feature of a debt management program or plan (DMP), which can help you a lot if you want to put an end to your ever-growing debt burden.

Which debts are eligible for a DMP?

Unsecured debts like credit card bills, medical bills, student loans, payday loans, tax debt, department store cards, personal loans, and unsecured lines of credit can be paid off with a debt management plan. Check out the types of debt OVLG works on.

What are the steps involved in a debt management plan?

Debt management plans are custom-made repayment plans which helps a particular debtor to regain control over his finances and helps him to pay off his debts over a stipulated time period. The best debt management programs usually involve the following steps:

  1. Initial financial counseling - A thorough analysis of your income, expenses, savings and total debt amount can reveal the reason behind the financial difficulties you're facing. The free evaluation can also help you to find out about the fixed amount that you can realistically afford to pay each month, and accordingly determine if a DMP is right for you.
  2. Negotiation with creditors - Once you agree to enroll in a DMP, the representative of the company/agency starts negotiating with your single or multiple creditors. The negotiation usually results in lower interest rates.
  3. Setting up of payment plan - The financial experts then formulate a payment plan keeping your affordability in mind as well as the creditors' requirements. After both the creditor and debtor agrees to the payment plan, the plan gets finalized.
  4. Regular payments - You then start making regular payments to the company offering you debt management services. The company or agency consequently forwards your payments to your respective creditors. Regular payments are very important for debt management programs, and ensure that you enjoy the benefits that the creditors have agreed to, after negotiation.
  5. Repayment of debt accounts over a time-period - If everything goes as planned, you'll be able to get rid of your debts within a stipulated time period, as had been specified in your payment plan.

What are benefits offered by a debt management program?

Check out the benefits of DMP before you choose your own plan to get rid of the credit card dues or other forms of unsecured debts:

  1. The debt payments can be lowered
  2. Interest and other penalties can be reduced or eliminated.
  3. Multiple payments in a month can be replaced with a single payment
  4. Individual credit score improves with time
  5. Debts can be paid off faster as interest rates get reduced
  6. Bankruptcy filing and its consequent financial impact can be avoided
  7. Can put an end to your financial crisis and stress as you'll get professional guidance
