Student loan debt seems to follow a person around like a bad habit. It isn’t just the amount of money but also the years it takes to pay off the debt. Something that happens along the way involves the time frames for both payment and accumulation of obligation. Student loans can impact financial wellness for years to come.

Caught in a Trap

And, it feels like you can’t walk out. Government student loans have a six-month grace period but after that, the money starts to be demanded. Many times a young person falls into a problem without even knowing what happens. There is a time limit for achieving a degree in some programs. Anytime a student gets closed out of a class, it means extra time which is counted against the limitations. Additional debt in the form of interest payments can occur if it takes longer than the allotted time to graduate. Subsidies that are part of many federal programs can be impacted if a student accidentally goes below full-time status. It all seems to be one major trap. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services is sensitive to the student loan crisis. We offer a financial wellness program which helps address the situation.

We Make Use of Certified Counselors

No one needs to have amateur advice from self-appointed experts. Countrywide has a nationwide network of certified counselors who understand student debt. They will sit down with the financial wellness plan member and go over all of the ways to manage the payments. This includes the means by which a student loan balance can be reduced through various options. A young person does have to have the ways to finance the debt, and the counselor will help with any applications needed to help pay. Countrywide has a debt management plan option which might be what an individual needs. There is a fee included, but the service provider is well worth that small cost.
