Do’s and Don’ts of Student Loans – UNBROKE Financial Literacy Tip

1024 576 Charles Weeks

I have written extensively about student loans, in this video I talk about some of the more basic do’s and don’ts. The student loan market now is approximately $1.5 TRILLION, AND GROWING!!!

Higher education is usually worth the cost, that is as long as what you are studying will allow you to make enough income to pay back your loans in a timely manner.

How much you borrow, at what interest rates and how you decide to pay those loans back will have a major impact on your personal finances. You need to fully understand all of the terms of your student loans, if you don’t I suggest reviewing your promissory note immediately.

There is no better time than the present to put a plan in place to better understand and quickly pay off your student loans.

If you aren’t currently working with a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Practitioner you can learn more about my practice HERE or you can find other CFP® Practitioners HERE.
