Option #2 Debt Negotiation and Debt Settlement

Debt Negotiation Programs exist for cardholders who cannot afford their required minimum payments and who cannot afford the DMP monthly payment. A person who is enrolled in a Debt Negotiation program is not making monthly payments to the creditors. Instead, they are adding funds to an escrow account on a monthly basis.

These funds are building and are used to pay off debts, one debt at a time. The debt balances are negotiated down to about 50% of the original debt and then paid off. Therefore, a large portion of what the cardholder owes is forgiven. This is called a settlement. Until the cardholder settles all debts, their credit rating does reflect the delinquencies and the cardholder may experience collection calls.

This is the typical experience for anyone who can no longer afford their minimums. The typical Debt Negotiation program length ranges from 18 to 32 months. The Debt Negotiation program is considered the option to choose before filing bankruptcy. It may be the most popular program at this time. If your goal is to pay off your delinquent debt as quickly as possible while saving as much money as possible, this option may be for you.

Option #1 Debt Management

Debt Management is an option for people who are able to pay the monthly minimums payments required by their creditors but they find it very difficult. Their situation isn’t terrible but it is very tight. In a Debt Management Program (DMP), Creditors are asked to lower the cardholder’s interest rates so that more of the payment goes toward principal and less toward interest.

The Creditors may even lower the minimums a little bit. In this program, the DMP sends a proposal to the creditors requesting lower interest rates. The cardholder then makes a monthly payment to the DMP who in turn disperses the funds to each Creditor each month.

Since Creditors are receiving a payment each month, the cardholder should not experience annoying collection calls and the negative impact on their credit rating is minimal. The typical DMP length is about 5 years. If your credit rating is very important to you and it hasn’t already suffered, this may be the option for you.
