Debt Management Plan (DMP)
After the initial session, if you need additional assistance to eliminate debt, your counselor will develop a customized DMP for you. You'll receive a 33% member-member discount on the set-up fee for a DMP.
A DMP allows you to make one simple monthly payment to Money Management International (MMI), and authorizes MMI to pay each of your creditors on your behalf based on the terms negotiated with them.
MMI also works with creditors to stop collection, waive or reduce interest charges, and eliminate finance charge or late fees, wherever possible.
