Debt Advice from Justmoney

Debt advice is easy to find if you know where to look and even if you feel like you have too much on your plate or that there is no way out, a helping hand is always just a click away.

Before you look for debt advice you first need to understand just how much trouble you are in, though.  Are you completely out of your depth and not even managing to pay your bills anymore or are you simply struggling with one or two bills and looking for the best debt advice for possibly consolidating your debt?

If you are looking for serious debt advice, you might want to consider contacting the National Credit Regulator, especially if the questions relating to ill treatment by credit providers.   For this kind of debt advice visit the NCR’s websiteor call them on 0860 627 627.

When seeking debt advice, it’s important to ensure you contact a FAIS accredited financial advisor. This is because any professional financial services provider has to comply with the regulations of the Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA). FAIS aims to ensure that the giving of advice and the rendering of services are done properly.

While here are many people who can guide you in the right direction with tips and tricks when it comes to debt, make absolutely sure you only get debt advice from reputable financial institutions.

Justmoney.co.za’s preferred debt advice partner is DebtBusters or Debtsafe and if you need help regarding the best way to manage your debt or debt counselling, fill in a debt management enquiry form in order for a consultant to contact you.

Debt management is not another loan, instead it is an alternative way to get your debts under control.
