Student loan borrowers are at risk of losing vital repayment programs. Trump, DeVos and Congress are rolling back reforms and putting student loan companies over borrowers and students. Attendees may be unaware of free repayment options that could save them from financial distress. It doesn’t have to be this way. Join us to learn more about student loan repayment options, public service loan forgiveness and tips for getting out loan default. This session includes a 30-minute Q&A segment. We will be introducing a new online tool from our partners at Savi to assist borrowers in understanding and enrolling in federal student loan repayment programs, free of charge.
