Financial distress comes in many shapes and sizes and no one service can address the needs of all consumers. That's why MMI offers a wide range of counseling services in order to address some of the most common and troubling issues consumers face today.

Credit Counseling

Also know as debt and budget counseling, credit counseling is MMI's core service offering. Credit counseling is ideal for any consumer struggling with credit card debt, insufficient income, or overspending. Credit counseling is always free and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Debt Management Plans

A debt management plan (or DMP) is a structured repayment plan ideal for consumers with more credit card debt than they can comfortably handle. We work with your creditors to seek reduced monthly payments and interest rates. Debts are paid in full, usually within less than five years.

Consumers discover what options are available and are connected with their lenders to begin the process of rehabilitation if needed.
