Can you make overpayments when on a DMP with stepchange?

Options
Im on a DMP with stepchange and they pay my creditors direct for me. Is it possible to make over payments to reduce debt when on a managed DMP?

    No not easily which is why I left stepchange and moved to a self-managed DMP instead.

    Hummm, maybe then as its only really a short period of time till my debt is clear it would be more beneficial in the long run to maybe use any extra money I have and put it into a savings account......dunno what to do

    As another DMPer I'd be inclined to save it for unexpected emergencies particularly if it's for a short time.:)
