What is a debt management plan?

A debt management plan is a repayment plan designed to get you back in control of your unsecured debts, so you can declare yourself debt-free as soon as possible.

If you're struggling with your unsecured debts, a debt management plan could help you get out of debt with payments you can afford.

How does a debt management plan work?

Entering into a debt management plan could be the best way of repaying your debts - with payments you can afford.

A debt management plan works like this:

  • We'll figure out how much you can afford to repay your unsecured lenders per month
  • We'll ask them to accept lower payments on your behalf
  • We'll ask them to freeze interest and other charges (although we can't guarantee they'll agree to this), so you're directly paying off your debt - not the interest too
  • We'll deal with your lenders' letters and phone calls
  • You'll just make one tailored payment per month - and we'll deal with the rest.

No stress about making multiple payments to multiple lenders every month. No time-consuming correspondence with letters and phone calls. No worries that your monthly repayments are simply too high for you. Just a realistic path out of debt that you know you can afford.

Is a debt management plan right for me?

Are you unable to afford your agreed monthly payments? Are you repaying your lenders late, or missing payments? Would making lower monthly payments make a huge difference to your finances?

If so, a debt management plan could be the best way of tackling your debts.

It could be exactly what you're looking for if:

  • You want someone to deal with your debts for you
  • You want to get out of debt without a loan
  • You want to become debt-free without stretching your finances too far.

If you think a debt management plan could be right for you, speak to a professional debt adviser and find out how it could benefit you: helping you to pay your unsecured debt payments, your bills, mortgage and other 'priority' debts, stopping lenders' letters and phone calls and potentially saving you money on interest.

Are there any alternatives to a debt management plan?

Of course, a debt management plan isn't always the ideal solution. There are other ways of getting out of debt that may be more appropriate for you - such as an IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement).

What are the pros and cons of a debt management plan?


A debt management plan is designed to give you a realistic way of repaying your unsecured lenders. It could allow you to:

  1. Make one payment every month, tailored to your situation
  2. Freeze or reduce interest and charges on your debts if your lenders agree
  3. Get out of debt without the need for a loan.


However, it's also important to be aware of the downsides of a debt management plan:

  1. Your credit record will show that you have not maintained your original agreements and this will affect how easily you are able to get credit in the future.
  2. Making smaller payments will increase your overall repayment period and could cost you more overall due to interest
  3. Lenders are not obliged to accept a new debt management plan.
