Is a Debt Management Plan the best solution to your debt problems?
In a Debt Management Plan your debts are consolidated so that you only make one single payment per month. This single payment is particularly advantageous if you have been paying off a large number of credit and store cards. Being required to make only one payment will take away the stress of managing many different debts.
The payments you make in the plan are set at an affordable level based on your income and essential outgoings. Typically the arrangement will be a flexible one and so it can be altered if there are any changes to your circumstances.
Debt Management Plans are not however a solution for all debt problems. They are only an option for people who genuinely can't afford to keep up with their current repayments and it will likely affect your credit rating. If you have high amounts of debt then an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) may be a better option.
