If you are falling behind in your creditor payments and receiving collection calls, a debt management plan might be a good option for you. American Financial Solutions (AFS) financial education, credit and debt counseling services can help. Although you may find it hard to take that first step and contact a counselor, it is a good step to take. You are not alone, millions of Americans have fallen into financial trouble, and more do every day, as a result of the rising high costs of food and energy, falling home values and the credit squeeze caused by the recession. A properly structured debt management plan could be your way out of debt. What to expect
American Financial Solutions’ certified credit counselors will review your entire financial situation and help you to prepare a detailed budget which will list all of your income, expenses and debt. They will help you find an option that is right for you. If a debt management plan is a good option, they will structure a plan to allow you to repay your creditors with a payment that works within your budget. Best of all, they will consolidate all of your debt payments into just one payment per month on the day of your choice. AFS is a registered, 501(c) 3 non-profit agency, part of the North Seattle Community College Foundation, and a proud member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating. We are accredited by the Council on Accreditation and abide by the best practices and Code of Standards of the Association of Independent Consumer Credit Counseling Agencies (AICCCA).
Who is a good candidate for a Debt Management Plan?
A good candidate for a Debt Management Plan has a high debt to income ratio and is having trouble making minimum payments. They may have fallen behind on their payments and cannot come up with the current minimum payment including the late payments and fees. Their budget shows that they can afford to make the DMP payment which will help them to pay off the debt in a much shorter period of time than they could on their own, if creditors wave penalties and lower interest rates. They are committed to becoming debt free.
"I'm so thankful my sons talked me into turning my credit over to you five years ago. I’m now debt free, thanks to your help. I intend to stay debt free and it’s a great feeling. Your service was always friendly and well presented when I needed help. I would recommend you to anyone. Keep up the good work and God bless you." - Terry H.
