Your creditors will be notified of your enrollment into a Debt Management Plan, and your accounts will be locked into a lower interest rate while remaining in the program. If you decide to cancel your plan, your reduced interest rates and perks will be lost, and your higher rates will be reestablished. Once all of you accounts are verified, you will only need to make a single payment to APFSC, and we will distribute your payment to your various creditors in a fashion to get your highest interest rate debt paid off first.
For Debt Management, a credit counselor will go over your income, debt, and expenses. If you do not have access to your debt information, our counselors, with your permission, can do a “soft pull” on your credit report. This has NO impact on your credit score, rather it gives the most updated information on your current debt.
For Pre-Bankruptcy counseling there will be a review of the information you provided during your course and discussion to determine your understanding of course materials.
