How It Works

The debt management plan consolidates your debt into a single payment. Each payday, you automatically deposit money into your GreenPath account, and we use that money to pay on your behalf. We may be able to arrange lower interest rates and monthly payments with your creditors, so you can pay off debt faster and save money.

Once creditors agree to the program, collection calls stop and you see your balances start to go down.

Why Choose a Debt Management Plan?

Sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned, but with the help of a debt management plan, you can get back on track and well on your way to planning a better and brighter financial future.

Debt management plans are designed to make your debt manageable while helping you develop sound financial literacy. Through a debt management plan, you will make payments on your original debt, working to improve your credit score in the long run. Consolidate and combine your payments into one, manageable payment to reduce the overwhelming stress of multiple debt payments across credit cards, loans, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

We work with most creditors throughout the U.S., including banks, credit unions, retailers, medical providers, auto finance and collection agencies.

Debt Management Program set up fees and monthly fees vary based on your state of residence and debt amount. On average, GreenPath clients are charged a one-time enrollment fee of $35 and a $28 monthly fee. This is minimal considering the amount of money our clients typically save in waived late fees, waived over limit fees, and reduced credit card interest charges.

Since the goal of a debt management program is to pay off debt, the credit cards enroll in the program will be closed. Most creditors will usually allow you to continue using one card for emergencies and travel.

GreenPath is a neutral third-party that works in your best interest. Many creditors support our work because they believe it results in positive, long-term outcomes.

GreenPath does not contact the credit bureaus when you enroll in a debt management program. However, because you will be closing lines of credit during the enrollment process, your score may dip. But over time, most people see their scores increase, because they are making payments in-full and on-time each month.

Yes, they are different. Debt management plans are designed to pay off the entire amount you owe in 3 to 5 years. If we can lower your interest rates, the total amount you pay to your credit card company is typically less than if you paid on your own. Debt settlement typically involves requesting credit card companies to forgive a portion of your debt in exchange for a lump sum payment.
