Do you have debts?Once debt becomes a problem a lot of questions arise.
Unfortunately many debt restructuring companies offer expensive and unqualified debt counselling. We therefore recommend that you find a debt counselling service that is a member of the Swiss Debt Counselling Association. These debt counselling offices offer advice free of charge or at a very reasonable rate. You will be given competent advice on:
- Your options for dealing with your debt
- The legitimacy of your creditors' claims and/or debt collection
- Dealing with creditors, the debt collection agency and the debt recovery agency
- Savings options and financial entitlements (such as supplementary benefits, health insurance benefits and social security benefits, etc.)
- Organising your finances
In the case of smaller debts you can ask a budget or social security advice centre for support.
