What is a debt management plan? (DMP)

A Debt management plan is an informal debt solution which enables people in debt to consolidate their monthly bills into one low monthly fee.

This is whilst having a representative who is a debt expert to handle all matters relating to the debt on your behalf, this includes dealing with creditors, bailiffs and managing the distribution of funds to your creditors.

Advantages Of A Debt Management Plan

  • Informal, flexible arrangement with creditors which keeps the debt managed
  • Enables more manageable monthly repayments
  • Reduce debts over time
  • Often debts owed can be renegotiated but this is not guaranteed
  • Easy and fast to setup
  • Creditors may agree to freeze charges and interest

Can be broken if it is not kept to strictly and creditors can still chase
Creditors are not obligated by law to freeze interest and/or charges
Credit file may still be affected whilst on the debt management plan

This will be dependent on your current debt level, the more debt being managed in general means the more money being saved (even more so with an IVA),

Example Savings:

Before Debt Management Plan: Susan pays £835 per month out towards a mixture of loans, credit cards, and catalogue fees.

On Debt Management Plan: Susan now pays a more manageable £265 per month as a total figure per month towards her debts

(Vastly reduced debt repayments).
