How it Works

Affordable Repayment

Debt review puts a new, legally binding payment agreement in place with your credit providers.

Regulated Process

It’s a tightly regulated process, protected by legislation.

You're Protected

There’s little leeway to deviate from the standard process. Here’s why this is a good thing.
Credit providers and debt counsellors (like us) must comply with these legal guidelines. It ensures that we do our job, that your new payment agreement is honoured and that you’re treated fairly at all times.

The Foster Difference

If debt review is pretty standard, then what do we mean when we say: we do it differently?  We’ve found ways to make it even better for you.

                      At Foster, we are pushing the frontiers of what debt review can do for your overall financial wellbeing, beyond clearing your debt.

                      Why?

                      Most individuals who start debt review, do not successfully complete the process, and most who have completed it, fall back into over-indebtedness.

                      Clearly, something isn’t working. We are committed to changing this narrative.

                      Our goal is to enable every individual who starts their debt review journey with us to successfully complete it and to be set up for lasting financial success long after debt review.

                      How?

                      We’ve added extra support steps in the normal debt review journey so that it’s as easy as possible for you to:
                      • Transition into the process.
                      • Stay committed towards successfully becoming debt free.
                      • Foster good financial habits and decision-making to use after debt review.
                      While we work on clearing your debt, we also work on getting back your financial confidence, so that you feel equipped to face your finances after debt review.
                      Sounds Good to Me

                      So, what can you expect?

                      Making this decision will bring about some changes to your daily life. Debt review is a commitment, but ultimately a commitment to a better, financially empowered way of life.  

                      Initially it can
                      feel like a lifestyle
                      adjustment.

                      You should be able to pay your monthly expenses and allocate the maximum amount you can afford towards repaying your debt. This might mean tightening your budget, spending less and living more modestly.

                      You won't have access to more credit.

                      Chances are, until now, you’ve often relied on credit to get through the month or to cover unplanned expenses. You’ll learn how to manage your money so that you won’t need debt during the month and break the habit. Once your clearance certificate is issued, the debt review status on your credit record will be removed.

                      You can’t miss your debt review payment.

                      If you do, credit providers can end the debt review agreement and take legal action against you for any unpaid debt. As long as you uphold the agreement, you are protected.  If you struggle to make payment at any point, reach out to us first.
