This is part two in a three-part series addressing how people can save for college or reduce or eliminate student loan debt. In our first post, we shared some tips that are “better than faking your death” to pay off student loan debt. In this sampler tray (or beer flight) of savings ideas, we’ll share how adults who are looking to return to college can find financial assistance or reduce the cost of post-secondary education.
We covered the reasons why in more detail in our first post, but we’re chatting about college savings and student loan debt for two reasons:
- First, plain and simple. The quicker you can wipe out debt, the quicker you can start saving properly for other life events.
- Second, we recently launched a personal financial advice service. Clients can access it via mobile or desktop using the chat feature on the bottom-right of the screen. Since we’ve launched, the topic of student loan debt has been a top question posed by our clients.
