Getting a Grip on Your Student Loans
Session Description: Attorneys and recent graduates have important decisions to make about managing their student debt. Flexible repayment options and forgiveness provisions are available, but the details matter and it can be confusing to figure it out on your own.
Heather knows how to break it down step-by-step so it makes sense once and for all.
From this presentation, you can:
determine what kind of loans you have and why it makes a difference,
evaluate whether you can benefit from the new Pay As You Earn, income-based repayment and other options, and
learn simple steps to qualify for public service loan forgiveness.
Bring your toughest questions because the expert is in the house!
