How we help

The Money Advice and Budgeting Service is the State’s money advice service.

We have more than twenty years of experience helping people with problem debt.

MABS is free, confidential and independent.

We work with people who have all types of personal debt, and many of our clients have multiple types of debt. We aim to look at each client's situation as a whole, seeking to find the best solution for that client.

You can find out more about people we help on our page, 'Who we can help'.

You can find out more about our process on our page, 'How MABS can help'.

We provide our service through a Helpline (0761 07 2000, Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm) and through a network of more than 60 offices across Ireland. We also offer a range of online resources on this website.

In addition to our work with clients, MABS has a role in education in the area of debt and money management.
