Our Student Loan Experiences
One young couple couldn't envision how they would be able to buy a house in the next decade based on their graduate school debt. Another couple had no idea how to fit potential child care expenses into their budget until they paid off their student loans. Two new parents kept far too much money in his savings account because they weren't sure whether to repay their student loans, save for retirement, or fund a college savings account.
The student loan burden that millennials face is well documented, but our financial planning work in Washington, D.C., has introduced us to many personal stories of uncertainty, indecision, and stress. Kevin Mahoney, CFP®, a leading Millennial financial expert, created The Student Loan Review in an effort to ensure that high-quality student loan information and advice reaches more people.
