What Will My DMP Counseling Session Be Like?
You can call to talk to a credit counselor or find a Debt Management Program solution online. If you choose to learn about a Debt Management Plan by telephone, you'll speak with a caring, expert Certified Financial Counselor. Your debt information will be accessed (using a "soft pull" that doesn't affect your credit score) from the credit bureau to ensure that you're working with current, accurate information. The Credit Counselor analyzes your income, assets and debts, then calculates the monthly payment and length of time required to retire your credit debts. Upon your approval, your plan will activate and you'll be on a path to debt-free living.
