Student Loan Repayment Strategies

 By making prudent financial decisions, families and students can plan for a better financial future after graduation.

By making prudent financial decisions, families and students can plan for a better financial future after graduation.

As tuition costs increase at many schools around the country, more and more parents and students are left struggling to make challenging decisions about their financial future. However, all too often these choices are made without expert guidance that can help families truly prepare for the long-term challenges of loan repayment and inform them of the consequences of negative actions such as missed payments and default.

According to education experts, students who default on student loans often face repercussions that damage the health of their overall finances, and by extension, their ability to life a stress-free life.

In extreme cases, student loan defaults can lead to wage garnishments, credit score damage and even the interception of the loan holder’s income tax returns. The most damaging of these consequences may be the individual’s loss of a prime credit score.

Without this rating, students and graduates are left to pay higher interest rates on new forms of borrowing such as credit cards, car loans, housing loans and other essentials. Over time, these extra costs can add up to thousands of dollars in losses that could have been avoided with proper planning.

At College Financing Group, our New York-based experts offer high school students, college students and graduates nationwide a low cost, flat-fee solution that can help them better understand and navigate the complexity of student loan repayment options, wherever they may be in the process.
