Debt review that's 100% confidential 

SA Debt Help offers you a completely secure and confidential debt review application process. You can rely on them to protect your personal information and never reveal this to third parties.

Transparency as a non-negotiable

One thing that SA Debt Help will not negotiate on is transparency. Their application form is available on their website with the full costs, and terms and conditions attached to applying for debt review.

In addition to offering debt review services, they can also offer you income and retrenchment insurance that will pay out a set amount for a period of six months.

Debt review is not a one-size fits all

SA Debt Review makes it clear that debt counselling is not a viable option for everyone. Not only must your debts qualify for debt review but, there may be instances when some creditors will not agree to have your debt with them included.

This is why it’s crucial to work with an experienced debt counsellor like SA Debt Help to make sure it’s for you and that it’s set up the right way.

Who should apply for debt review?

If you’re struggling to repay your debts and cover your living expenses, have made some late payments or even skipped payments, you may be over-indebted.

As someone who is over-indebted, you have the right to request the assistance of a debt counsellor and apply for a debt review. SA Debt Help will restructure your debt and negotiate with your creditors to lower the interest rate and fees charged.

What happens after you apply

Once you’ve applied and SA Debt Help has restructured and negotiated your debts, the new budget will be made an order of the court. Your creditors will not be able to take any legal action against you and should not contact you.

You’ll then continue to make a single repayment every month to a Payment Distribution Agency (PDA) as per regulations. They will send you an invoice every month to show how the amount has been distributed.

Once you’ve repaid all the debts according to the plan, you’ll be clear of debt and will be issued with a clearance certificate. You will also be able to apply for credit once this process is complete.
