Student Loan Planner

Feb 28, 2023

Listen in as Meagan McGuire, CSLP®, and Dan Rooker, CFP®, CSLP®, share the results of the Supreme Court case on cancellation… just kidding. While we'd love to dive into how the case plays out, we recorded this episode prior to the verdict. But don't worry, we've got plenty of other valuable insights to share. 

We’re taking a closer look at the new Revised Pay As You Earn plan, commonly referred to as the "new REPAYE," and assessing whether it's a good fit for you. Plus, over the past few years, student loan freezes have influenced how people file taxes. How does the situation you’re in now impact how you should file for 2022? Things will continue to change with the results of the most recent Supreme Court case coming out, but there are still plenty of ways to plan how you’re going to file for this year. 

Then, we’ll discuss some of the nuances that are affecting student loan borrowers right now, loan consolidation, and as always, we'll be sharing some intriguing stories from our email inbox.
