Student (Loan) Saga – Status

Additionally, there are new updates from the Biden administration to income-driven repayment plans and eligibility for forgiveness. Read on for current updates…

Word of the Week: Annual Percentage Rate (APR)
Those who have student loans – or any type of loans – are likely familiar with the term annual percentage rate (or APR). The annual percentage rate represents the cost you pay per year to borrow money including interest rates and additional fees. Knowing the APR for your credit cards, auto loans, mortgages, and student loans can give you a good idea of how much you’ll pay to take out a loan and empower you to make grounded financial decisions.
