Unity are not licensed to administer or offer advice on Debt Management Plans but below is a brief explanation of what a DMP is:
What is a DMP?
A DMP (Debt Management Plan) is an informal agreement between an individual and their creditors. DMPs could help to reduce outstanding debts over a fixed period of time at a lower repayment level to help people regain control of their finances.
To calculate how much they can afford to repay – the income and expenditure of the individual or household is taken into consideration including rent/mortgage, secured loans, utility bills, and essential living expenses (food & TV licence etc.) and the surplus is the individual’s disposable income which is then distributed to creditors (less any fees due) If the individual’s circumstances change, payments may be lowered or raised accordingly – so the plan is totally flexible and there is no binding contract.
So if you’re experiencing financial difficulties and finding it hard to make your monthly repayments on any loans, credit cards, store cards or other unsecured debts then a Debt Management Plan could help you regain control of your finances.
