Before We Talk

So you just booked a time for us to talk about your student loans?


Here’s what I’d like you to do next:

1. Create an FSA ID

If you haven’t already done so, or are unsure if you have, create a Federal Student Aid ID.

Federal Student Aid ID homepage

The FSA ID will allow us to use the National Student Loan Data System.

National Student Loan Data System [NSLDS] homepage

That System will allow us to look at every loan you borrowed from the Department of Education.

Private Student Loans

You can ignore this if your issue is with a private student loan. There is no central database to find information for private student loans. The best way to get info about private student loans is to check your credit report.

2. Gather Financial Documents

Got questions about how low your monthly payment could be or what type of settlement I can negotiate for you? If so, grab your tax return, W-2, pay-stubs, etc.

I’ll use that information to give you a better estimate of payment and settlement amounts.

3. Make a List

Don’t you hate it when you leave a conversation and kick yourself because you should’ve asked this or that? I do too.

So let’s avoid that.

Make a list of your questions.

I’ll try my best to get through each one.
