How to Manage Debt During the Festive Season

If you are already struggling with your debt, this time of year can be difficult to manage financially. For over indebted South Africans, clever budgeting can only get you so far. A lot has changed since December 2021. We’ve seen the cost of food and fuel go up and interest rate hikes increasing our debt repayments. 

If you are struggling to keep up with your debt and are unable to keep up with living expenses, there is help available through the NCR regulated debt review process. Debt Review legislation came into effect in 2005 to protect the consumer and offer statutory relief in the event that they can no longer afford their debt.

What is Debt Review? Do I need it?

How many of these boxes do you tick?  

South Africans are resilient, excellent at making plans and keeping their heads above water. However, no one could have predicted the rising costs at the speed at which it has happened. If you agree with 3 or more of the statements below, it may be worth considering debt review. 

  1. Your debt is affecting your mental health (sleep, anxiety, stress, depression)
  2. Your income is no longer covering all your living expenses
  3. You have or are thinking about selling assets to cover costs
  4. You are looking for ways to take out more credit to cover your debt
  5. You have fallen behind with one or more of your debt repayments
  6. You have reached your limit on one or more of your credit cards or overdraft facilities

Debt review was put into place to help South Africans financially. It was specifically designed to provide a safety net for consumers to keep their assets, keep up with living costs and still settle their debts. If the above statements resonate with your life, debt review may be able to help you today.
