New Debt Management Plans From Creditors
The National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC) and Association of Independent Consumer Credit Counseling Agencies (AICCCA) teamed up to help consumers find better debt repayment terms from credit card companies. And report success.
The groups targeted the top ten creditors, seeking improvement on the
standard and hardship debt management plans (DMPs). The new plans are designed to allow consumers to maintain
a reasonable monthly budget, start an emergency savings, set affordable fixed monthly payments, and be out of
debt within 60 months. Of course, some of these factors such as saving and following a budget are up to the consumer.
Participating creditors include:
Bank of America
Chase Card Services
Discover Financial Services
HSBC Card Services
Wells Fargo Card Services
If you have a troubled account with one of these banks, call and ask about the new repayment plans. If you need more help, reach out to the NFCC.
