Dumping Student Loan Debt


Student loans can be a big monthly burden. Right now the average debt per borrower is$28,400!

Student loans can affect more than just your bank account. According to a recent survey of borrowers,

  • 62% said they have put off saving for retirement
  •  28% said that student debt has delayed their decision to start a family

Jay Fleischman has pretty much seen it all. Jay is an attorney one of the most knowledgeable and experienced out there on student loans and bankruptcy.

We're looking at some essentials like:

  •  key differences between federal and private loans
  • deciding whether forbearance is the right move for you  and,
  • what to know before you refinance

If you two are struggling to make ends meet, then today's show can be a financial lifesaver.
