A Debt Management Plan for a Healthy Financial Life
The road to financial wellness can be bumpy. We help smooth the way. GreenPath is a national nonprofit with more than 60 years of experience supporting people who are solving financial challenges.
Benefits of A Debt Management Plan
Pay Debt Off Faster
A caring, certified counselor customizes your debt management plan to work with your creditors to bring your accounts current, lower interest rates and eliminate fees.
Save Money on Fees & Interest
This means that more of your payment goes toward reducing your account balances. It can help you pay off debts faster, and save money on interest.
Make Progress Toward Financial Fitness
An added benefit is that once the debt management plan is established, diminishing collection calls and creditor balances help reduce worry and stress about your debt situation.
NOTE: This is an example. It helps you see how a debt management plan might help you. IT IS NOT AN ACTUAL QUOTE.
How the Debt Management Calculator Works
The pay “on your own” example assumes you make only the minimum payment. We use an interest rate of 24 percent. The GreenPath debt management plan example shown is based on getting rid of your debt within five years. We use an average interest rate of 8 percent (in most cases, we can work with your creditors to reduce your interest rate). Actual interest rates will vary by client and creditor. If the results of the GreenPath debt management calculator example show that we might be able to save you money, chat or call us today to conduct a free debt counseling session with one of our NFCC-Certified counselors. The session is 100% confidential, no pressure and judgment-free.
Why A Debt Management Plan Works
“They made things where I could afford them and still get my bills paid every month. They were really understanding and I would recommend them to anybody. I don’t have credit card debt anymore, so working with them is definitely a plus. It’s a blessing.”
