It is true there has been a lot of noise in the media about the rising costs of education, but in spite of this, the fact remains that getting your education through a college is still one of the most easily affordable forms of education you can obtain.
Statistics have shown that students who graduate through a college are more likely to earn over $1 million more (in their careers) than their counterparts from high-school.
The fact is that, these days, there are more students that are receiving financial aid that ever before. There are more low-interest loans available from government and private companies alike. In fact, the climate it so competitive that is only too easy to obtain financial assistance.
This is one of the biggest myths of all time, I think it even rivals that of ‘Jimmy Hoffa is Buried in a Gravel pit somewhere in Michigan’
Financial aid is given to families that have all types of high income levels. Education has been made affordable even for those who think they can’t afford it. …Read More
To avoid falling behind in your commitments, and to maintain your credit score and credit rating, a Payday Loan or Payday Cash Advance may provide the perfect solution. If you are in need of extra cash until your next pay day, you may want to consider applying for a payday loan or cash advance online.
A Payday Loan can be obtained online with no credit check. If you have a bad credit record, this will not disqualify you from obtaining one. The loan proceeds can often be deposited into your checking account the same day as you apply. All you need to qualify is a checking account and a regular source of income, and you can qualify for up to $1000 or more to be deposited directly into your checking account.
Although you can use a payday loan for any purpose, it is mainly designed to help with your short-term financial needs, and because of the cost of borrowing with these loans, they should not be used as a source of regular lending. The finance costs of Payday Loans are usually higher than a traditional bank loan and should therefore only be used to cover short term financial commitments.

Essentially, refinancing means that you will take out a new loan to pay off the existing loan(s). One you’ve refinanced the two loans will be combined into one loan with a lower monthly payment. Typically, refinancing allows you to choose better interest rates and repayment terms, but in most cases you do need to have very good credit (and a good track record when it comes to making monthly payments) in order to refinance.
You can refinance both federal and private loans, but refinancing a federal loan means that you will give up certain rights that you probably don’t want to forfeit.
When you consolidate a loan, you don’t take out a new loan. Instead, you combine various loans into a single loan. The benefit of consolidation is that it’s easier to make one single payment instead of making multiple payments for multiple loans. However, there are drawbacks to consolidation. While a payment might be lowered if you consolidate a loan, there’s a good chance that the interest rate will be much higher — this is something that you’ll want to be very careful about.
It doesn’t make any sense to consolidate a loan for sheer …Read More
Obviously, a lender’s pre-approval letter carries more weight with a seller than a pre-qualification letter because it is proof of your buying power on paper. Being pre-approved gives you an advantage when you’re among several buyers pursuing a property.
If at all possible, consider paying off any high-interest loans before applying for a mortgage. The more debts—like car loans or credit card balances—that appear on your mortgage application, the smaller the loan amount the lender will be willing to offer.
Never inflate your income or lie about employment dates. …Read More
In the USA, from what I have seen and read, the Consolidated Credit Counseling Service seems to be a useful organisation. The CCCS aims to help families end financial crisis by offering guidance and money management education.
Not being an American or having debts in the US, I have no firsthand experience of their work. However, they do claim that their size offers bargaining power with lenders which they use to have fees and penalties waived on your behalf. On it;s own, that could be a big reason to speak to them.
As I said, I’m no expert, but they look like a worthwhile group. I’m sure you could do much worse than to speak to them.
In the UK, the main debt management non profit organisation isn’t actually a specialist debt consultancy. Instead they offer free legal guidance and a number of other services.
The Citizens Advice Bureau is manned by volunteers across the UK. These volunteers are sometimes qualified specialists and sometimes not.
Several years ago, before I left the UK, I helped a friend for a few evenings. Like me, he worked in the financial advice / mortgage industry. He volunteered one evening per fortnight (as I …Read More
If you are among the elite few who have managed your credit cards and other loans responsibly the bank will reward you with added perks such as airline points cards or low interest credit cards. There are many card offers that will reward your good financial habits with low or no annual fees, some great reward points as well as introductory rates of 0% APR with ongoing low interest rates. Typically the interest free period is 6 months but in some cases will be awarded to you for a full year. Since your credit is in excellent standing the interest free period might not be of concern to you as you are probably the type that pays your credit card balance in full every month. If this is the case you should make your credit card comparisons based upon the rewards and extra perks offered by the bank – if you are paying your balance in full a 0% APR is really of no value to you.
The good credit range is where the majority of people are with their personal finances. You will still qualify for a card offer …Read More
A Payday Loan is a helpful little tool that will provide you with a bit of extra cash when you need it. A Payday Loan is a fiscal sum intended to help the average working adult make ends meet.

These loans are cashed in amounts ranging from $100 to $1,500.

You will be contacted within a six to eight business days with your results. There is a different way to go about doing this though.

Teletrack is an organization that provides fiscal information to financial companies in regards to individuals wishing to take out a loan. This information may include bad credit, credit history, outstanding checks and bankruptcy. If you’re worried you may be denied because of bad …Read More
Plan A: A high school senior found her right-fit school, that is, it was the right size, the right lattes, the right ambiance, the right major, the right geography, the right mascot, and even a right financial aid package that left her struggling parents with an out-of-pocket expense of $14,500 at a $45,000-a-year school.
I say “struggling” parents because $14,500 was still hard to materialize, but they said they’d find a way, whatever that meant. But out of nowhere, a wrong-fit college sent the student a free application, and on a whim the student submitted it. The college came back with a student financial aid package that left the parents with a total out-of-pocket cost of $2,900.
A no-brainer, right? It’s now an easy decision to attend this college.
After the first semester, the student announces that she really doesn’t like her college and wants to be a student transfer. The parents are in a panic: the remaining three years of grants for college, worth a total of $75,000, are down the tubes. Ouch!
Almost spasmodically, the student applies to six private colleges in California, which are in the same league as the school she wants to leave, naively assuming …Read More
Many people don’t know but ‘personal loans’ is the generic term for all loan types. All loans fall under either one or the other personal loans category. Personal loans fundamentally are of two types – secured and unsecured loans.
Secured personal loans will like a security to be attached to them. The security usually is in the form of home but alternative collateral are also accepted. The loan amount with secured personal loans is usually more. You can borrow more at lower interest rates. The obvious drawback that everybody encounters is the loss of property if they fail to make repayments.
Unsecured loans do not require attaching any collateral. They are meant for everybody who cannot provide collateral, either by choice or compulsion. They take lesser time in being approved but are much favourable for lesser loan amounts. Everybody applying for unsecured personal loans will get comparatively higher interest rates. This is because no security is supplied for them.
Personal loans amount that can be approved extend from £5,000-£75,000. Everybody will be approved for have different amount. As secured personal loans, borrowers can get up to 125% of property value.
