Basically, this Debt Relief Program allows credit card users to sustain paying the account and prevent further delinquency. “To enroll in the program, CCAP will review the debtor’s financial capacity. The repayment period is up to 10 years for “severe cases indebtedness” with a low rate of 1.5 percent per month or lower depending on the profile of the customer, debt to income ratio and completion of documents required for the program. The participating banks may also have the option to disapprove application for customers who misused and abused the credit facility granted by the banks, said CCAP.
Based on a statement, CCAP said that as part of the guidelines of the program, all existing credit cards of the customer will have to be blocked or cancelled upon enrolment of the accounts to the program.
Rebates and rewards earned will also be forfeited. “Additionally, customers cannot apply for new credit facility with the participating banks while the accounts under the IDRP are not yet fully settled.” – Source: http://www.ccap.net.ph/?p=632
