What to Know about Debt Management


Having to pay back a loan over time is no big deal if you know what you’re doing.

Financially savvy people have a plan for debt that saves both time and money. They save time because they pay back debts more quickly, and they save money because that plan allows them to save the interest that might accrue if they let the debt go on and on. They know that paying the minimum payments each month keeps their debt in good standing, but paying more when possible saves them big over time.

You need to have a solid plan to pay down your debts. Setting specific goals, maximizing your payments, and adhering to your plan will get you out of debt faster and even build your credit. After all, your history with credit, reflected in your credit report, shows future creditors how well you can handle the debts you’ve had.

There are a couple of plans of attack that work wonders on your debts, which you can learn all about in our free online course “Debt Management.” Member One offers comprehensive online educational resources to help you make smart financial decisions.
