Debt Trap

Experts Report

Debt Statistics in South Africa currently stand as below, and are on a daily incline:

There are 24.31 million credit-active consumers, the percentage of consumers in bad standing is now 40.15% (9.76 million), 2 out of every 5 credit-active consumers. This is 8 million more than the total number of employed people in South Africa.

Consumers owe as much as 75% of their monthly income to creditors, while 60% of the population are struggling to meet their monthly repayments for their home loans and credit cards.

Only 23% of South Africans have money left at the end of the month, with the other 77% left broke at the end of the month and no means of saving money.

Over 11 million of South Africa’s credit-active consumers are described as over-indebted.

What is over-indebtness?

An individual or household is over-indebted if its income is not sufficient to service the debt on time and provide household expenses, despite a reduction in the standard of living.

Why people fall under so much debt?

Think about it, just like no one plans to be a drug addict, no one plans to get into a debt trap. There are a number of reasons why one could end up being over-indebted, to name a few:

– Unemployment, retrenchment or salary cuts
– The constant rise in the cost of living
– Poor Financial Management (forgetting to save for emergencies and needs, overspending on wants)
– Building Credit ( Many people think they need to build credit but eventually get carried away with using credit on unnecessary items)
– Social Status (Some people easily attracted by product Ads, or are social-conscious trying to impress, fit in and show off, end up living beyond
their means)

Consequences of being over-indebted:

Being over-indebted is likely to lead to financial stress which can influence your health and wellbeing, which can also have a negative impact in your workplace. Money cannot buy you happiness but it can sure cause you an unhealthy level of stress. Health issues will then cause an increase in your medical expenses, i.e. Insomnia, severe anxiety and depression, heart problems and migraines. Also, once you have been declared as over-indebted it becomes difficult to provide for your needs and apply for credit in a case of an emergency.

The stats above are a clear indication that you are not alone in the struggle of debt. You just need to take your 1 st step into financial freedom, and that is consulting a debt-counsellor to assist you with sorting out your debts.

The Role of the NCR

The National Credit Regulator (NCR) is the regulator for the National Credit Act (NCA) and regulates the South African credit industry.
The role of the National Credit Regulator is to:

  • Ensure enforcement of the National Credit Act
  • Register industry participants (Debt Counsellors, Creditors and Credit Bureaus)
  • Ensure that debt counsellors, creditors and credit bureaus comply with the National Credit Act
  • Investigate complaints against debt counsellors, creditors and credit bureaus
  • Educate and create awareness on the protection the National Credit Act offers to credit consumers
  • Research the credit market and its trends
  • Advise government on policy legislations

 

All debt counsellors are required to be registered with the NCR, this ensures that the consumer right in terms of the NCA is protected.
