Debt Management

Debt management is learning to live on a budget day by day, no matter the cause of your debt.

Debt management plans help people decrease and eliminate debt. The plans work best with “unsecured debt,” or debts such as credit cards, bank overdrafts and personal loans. “Secured debt,” such as mortgages, rent and utility debts, cannot be included in a debt management plan.

Debt management plans are necessary if you have too much debt. If you cannot meet your monthly payments, your creditors will record it on your credit history, which may lower your credit score, decrease your ability to find a new loan or take out new credit cards, and increase your interest rate.

If you’re a do-it-yourself individual, you can create your own debt management plan by prioritizing necessary expenses such as mortgage or rent, food and utilities such as electricity bills.


Our debt management program helps simplify your monthly unsecured debt obligations. Examples of unsecured debt include: credit cards, department store cards, collection agencies, credit lines, and unsecured personal loans. Once you have enrolled, we will consolidate your payments and disburse funds to your creditors on your behalf.

As part of our debt management program, our financial counseling specialists will assist you with how to consolidate debt. Debt consolidation is an important step in lowering monthly payments to creditors and collection agencies. Unlike a debt consolidation loan, you do not borrow money. Credit card debt consolidation under a debt management plan provides you with one easy payment.
