Debt Management - Financial Planning
For most Canadians, their mortgage represents the single largest debt they will incur during
their lifetime. Add to that other debts such as credit cards, bank loans and lines of credit and
the monthly payments required can be a significant drain on monthly income.
Managing these payments, while meeting other monthly expenses and trying to save a little
for emergencies often creates an intricate process of deposits, transfers and withdrawals to
and from several different bank accounts. In most cases, accounts spread between different
financial institutions. There is a better way! It’s called Manulife One*
With the use of a unique, all-in-one personal borrowing and chequing account, you can
combine your mortgage, credit cards and other loans with your savings, chequing account and
your income. Now your income can instantly reduce what you have borrowed, potentially
saving you thousands of dollars on interest.
How it Works:
• A borrowing limit is established based on the value of your home, and
used to consolidate your current debts.
• Your income is deposited into your account, reducing your balance
owing immediately – and you pay interest on that lower amount until
you spend your money.
• Live out of the account. Monthly expenses can be paid by cheque,
debit card, via Internet or telephone banking. Your account serves the
purpose of your mortgage, line of credit and all of your loans, as well as
your chequing and short-term savings accounts.
• Interest is Calculated Daily. At the end of each month, you are charged
the accumulated interest for the month – you only pay interest on what
you owe on any given day.
Now you can pay off debt faster, and you can get at your money anytime. If you can manage
your money easily and save thousands in interest, isn’t it time you looked at handling debt
in a new way?
