The debt counselling division comprises 300 support staff with 30 debt counsellors in place. The debt counselling division is the company’s most lucrative business function and has led the company to be voted as the best debt counselling company in South Africa for 2020.

Debt Consolidation

National Debt Advisors Debt consolidation solution is there to help clients combine all their debt and take all their monthly repayments and replace them with one monthly instalment. NDA will help you either to apply for a consolidation loan or choose to be placed under debt review. 

A consolidation loan is a loan taken against all the amounts that you owe credit providers. The loan will allow clients to pay one monthly instalment instead of making payments to numerous lenders. Consolidation loans are hard to get as lenders require a clear credit record with a good credit score and will require an initiation fee. 

Using the NDA debt consolidation allows clients to use the NCR regulated process of debt review. This will help in:

  • Getting an extended repayment term,
  • Lowering interest rates on the new loans,
  • assets being protected from repossession.

Debt Management

Debt management solution is for those that are over-indebted but have not been defaulting on their debt repayment. The National Debt Advisors management plan helps customers cope with their debt under this solution. The solution comes with 4 steps that assist customers to have an affordable lifestyle and to cope with debt. 

The Debt Management plan includes:

  • Budget Planning – to check if you are over-indebted or not.
  • Advice – based on your indebtedness, debt counsellors will give advice on how to structure your new debt plan,
  • Debt Management Plan – NDA will draw a plan that will help lower your monthly installments, and
  • Debt Review placement – will allow you to have a great grasp of your debt and allow you to clean your credit report.

Debt Rescue

This product from National Debt Advisors helps customers from being harassed and secure their possessions. The product further:

  • Helps lower interest rates on loans,
  • Helps extend repayment terms on loans, and
  • Negotiate for customers to pay lower monthly installments than before. This is done through debt consolidation or the negotiation of interest rates.
