Frequently Asked Questions

Should I cancel my insurance or my medical aid?

You should not cancel your insurance, and there is no need to cancel your medical aid. In fact, if you end up in hospital while your medical aid is cancelled, you will only have more bills to pay. Rather look for other ways to save money.

What options are available to get debt relief?

A number of banks have announced plans to assist their customers during the difficult time ahead. However, they have made it very clear that this debt relief is limited to customers in good standing only. This means banks will only consider granting a payment holiday to you if you are not among the 10 million consumers that are currently in arrears.

Should I consider Debt Counselling at this time?

If your cash flow is tight and your next debt payment is due then Debt Review may be an option to create financial certainty. Your Debt Counsellor will assess your position and if Debt Review is the best option you will get legal protection immediately. In terms of the National Credit Act, your Debt Counsellor may also propose a payment holiday to deal with the uncertain time that may lie ahead.

Debt Review will provide the security that will help you to get through the uncertain times ahead.

Will Debt Counselling protect me if I lose my job due to COVID-19?

If you are retrenched and you have debt it is very likely that your Credit Life Insurance could cover this. Credit Life Insurance is normally compulsory on all personal and microloans. We will make sure you get the benefit of any insurance you may qualify for to ease your debt repayments.

The protection of Debt Review is available for all your debt. This is why the National Credit Act is recognised as the best in the world. We know how to implement this protection and if you are covered, we assist you to claim any benefit that you are entitled to.

Will I get a payment holiday from my debt because of the coronavirus?

If your cash flow is affected by the lockdown or coronavirus the National Credit Act already makes provision for a Debt Counsellor to recommend to a Magistrate to reduce payments for a few months to accommodate your short term cash flow problem. This means we can recommend a payment holiday for a limited period to allow you to recover. This will provide you for financial certainty and protection in these uncertain time. All you have to do is contact us and we will do the rest.
