What is Debt Relief?
Debt relief can be summarized as either the reorganization or complete forgiveness of either an individual, business, or country’s debt that is owed to outside creditors.
At times, the term debt relief has been used to almost exclusively detailing the debt woes of countries across the globe.
Today’s ‘debt relief’ encompasses so much more and has become personalized to individual needs rather than governmental. While it still connotes the reorganization or forgiveness of debt, it signifies the weight being lifted from an individual as they dig their way out of oppressive debt.
Debt Relief can help remove stress
Over the last several decades, the damage of debt upon an individual has been explored by many organizations, doctors, nonprofits, authors, and more. The common thread uncovered relates to how unhealthy owing great sums of money can be and the stress-related issues that can arise from it. Couple that with a severe lack of available financial education in schools across America and other countries and you have a recipe for disaster.
In America, where the culture is to earn, spend, consume, rinse and repeat, without prominent financial education, we are sending our youth into adulthood without the tools, knowledge, and resources needed to control their finances and grow them into lasting wealth.
When provided by an entity that has the individual’s best interest in mind, getting help with your finances can be very successful. When done right it can provide immediate help as well as mid to long-term benefits. To accomplish this, a quality program will look to ‘cure’ the issue from occurring again, not just the immediate symptom. Then, when any monetary relief is realized it will continue to provide resources to guard against recurrence.
This remedial or holistic approach has been well received and studies show that it works, but typically it works best when there is continued follow-up or access to resources aimed at taking future preventative measures.
How Money Fit provides Debt Relief
Money Fit by DRS has provided nonprofit credit counseling to consumers for over 22 years.
We’ve helped thousands upon thousands of consumers, perhaps like yourself, not only overcome their current debt-related issues but to equip them with the skillset and knowledge to prevent the event from happening again. While this may sound harsh, the reality is that once we’ve counseled an individual and aided them in fulfilling their debt obligations, we never want to see them again unless it’s to provide additional educational materials. It’s our charter, our vision, and what we stand for.
We have excellent working relationships with thousands of creditors, many of who want the same, for their customers to overcome their current challenges and to successfully manage their finances in the future, without the need for additional help.
Self Debt Relief
These services, whether received through a nonprofit organization such as Money Fit by DRS Inc., or even through the act of filing bankruptcy (which should be avoided at all costs to maintain credit standing) should be used as a last resort.
If an individual recognizes there are growing financial concerns, or sees no path to getting ahead without help, they should seek help. However, people that self-identify the potential issue before it becomes a full-blown problem should consider providing their own relief of sorts.
This typically starts by controlling spending habits and developing attainable goals. Money Fit, through the Money Fit Academy, provides a trove of free financial education resources for everyone to use.
These resources are available regardless of the stage they may be in when it comes to their finances. In fact, we aim to circumvent the problem before it starts by providing many hours of classroom education presentations, beginning at grade school levels.
We strive to continue to develop and enhance our presentations and source materials so that we stay on top of the rapidly changing learning environment.
