However, unemployed with substantial assets would find it fairly superior chance to qualify for loans for unemployed.

A home equity line of credit can provide financial guarantee for the unemployed. There is two way to draw on the equity of your home. You can get a home equity loan which is a lump sum and paid back in some specified time.

Or an unemployed can take a home equity line of credit which is like a credit card with revolving balance.

Student Debt Relief Companies

The Problem

There are a number of companies out there that will help you figure out a way to pay off your student loan debt, defer your payments, and make other arrangements with student loan companies for a price. Often, that price is very high, and you may find that you are paying through the nose just to get those student loan collectors off of your back – but it may all seem worth it in the beginning.

Here’s why it’s not worth it at all:

  • Most of the time, you can make the same arrangements on your own.
  • All of the things that these companies can do can be done by yourself.
  • These companies will make it sound like they have a magic answer to your problems – but they don’t.

Essentially, you will be spending a lot of money to fix a problem that you can fix for free. How? All you really have to do is pick up the phone and make an arrangement – unless you have already defaulted. Once you have defaulted, it becomes a bit trickier to figure out how to get out of student loan debt, but if you have no defaulted, you can make payment arrangements on your own without the help of anyone else.

When You Have Defaulted

Even if you find debt collectors calling you around the clock, it’s still not a good idea to seek the help of a debt relief company. Why? Often, these companies can make the situation worse, and you may wind up going through more people in order to find a solution to your problem. If you are being bothered by debt collectors and are worried about garnished wages and bad credit, the best thing you can do is to seek the help of an attorney.

Credit Misconceptions

  1. Your score will drop if you check your credit – Fortunately, this one is definitely not true.Checking your own report and score is counted as a “soft inquiry” and doesn’t harm your credit at all. Only “hard inquiries” from a lender or creditor, made when you apply for credit, can bring your credit score down a few points. Worried about damaging your credit while shopping around for a loan? Multiple inquiries for the same purpose within a short amount of time (a few weeks) are grouped together into a less damaging period of inquiry.
  2. Closing old accounts will improve your credit score – To close or not to close, that is the question. Many people advocate closing old and inactive accounts as a way for improving your credit. In most cases, closing accounts will actually have the opposite effect. Canceling old credit accounts can lower your credit score by making your credit history appear shorter. Think twice before closing the oldest account on your credit report. If you want to reduce your levels of available credit, ask for your credit limits to be reduced or close newer accounts instead.
  3. Once you pay off a negative record, it is removed from your credit report – Negative records such as collection accounts, bankruptcies and charge-offs will remain on your credit report for 7-10 years after they are first posted. Paying off the account before the end of the set term doesn’t remove it from your credit report, but will cause the account to be marked as “paid.” It is still a good idea to pay your debts, it can improve yourcredit score, but the major improvement will come when the record expires.

Upside Down on Car Loan

Financial difficulty often arises from auto financing. The happy car buyer drives their new vehicle off the lot financed nearly 100%. As the saying goes, almost immediately thereafter, the new vehicle depreciates in value several thousand dollars before it is even hits the highway.

Automobile transportation costs $4,000.00 to $6,000.00 annually including auto loan payments, liability and collision insurance, repairs and maintenance and gasoline.

Havoc begins when an unexpected car repair not covered by warranty, or a motor vehicle accident, unexpectedly and substantially decreases the value of the vehicle far below the outstanding loan balance owed to the bank. Or, perhaps more harmlessly, on a trade- in for a new vehicle where eager car salespersons and lenders agree to take in your old vehicle on trade, and throw the remaining outstanding balance from your old car loan (for a little higher payment) on the back-end of your new auto loan leaving the new car buyer considerably ‘upside-down’ on the new vehicle purchase.

These situations leave the borrower in a predicament where sizable portions of income are devoted towards covering an unsecured auto debt obligation that is of no use towards sustaining modest costs of necessities for family living.

Strategic Educational Funding

Custodial Accounts

Another way to consider paying for college is through a Custodial Account (UTMA/UGMA). This account is similar to an individual investment account but gifts made to it are held in trust until the child reaches the age of trust determination (age 18 or 21 depending on the type of account and state in which it is held). There are several drawbacks associated with this type of account. The assets in a custodial account are considered as the students’ and may count against them if they apply for college financial aid. Investment income generated by the custodial account must be reported on the child’s tax return and is taxed at the parents’ rate. And finally, it’s most important to consider that the funds in a custodial account are irrevocable and once the child reaches adulthood, they are free to spend the funds as they choose.

Direct Payments

Federal gifting rules allow a parent or grandparent to make a direct gift of up to $14,000 per year to anyone without paying gift taxes on it. This amount will not be deducted from the lifetime federal gift and estate tax exclusion and one can make as many gifts of $14,000 or less as a person deems fit. Married couples can give $28,000 per recipient without any gift tax ramifications, though they must report to the IRS that they have combined gifts. If however, funds are paid directly to a qualified educational institution, there is no limit to the amount a person can give. This type of direct payment will incur no gift tax and nothing will be deducted from an exclusion amount but this applies only for the part of the gift paid directly to the institution. If the gifter also wishes to cover other costs such as books or room and board that must be paid separately, a regular gift must be made to meet these costs.

Best Strategies for Young Parents

For Parents, savings strategies must fit the family and the finances. The downside to contributing a monetary gift in the form of a custodial account is that anything in the account will belong to the child upon entering adulthood; therefore it is important for young parents to consider how the child might use the money when he or she comes of age. For this reason, a 529 might be a better choice for a parent to put into place now for a young child’s educational savings plan. Investing in a 529 will allow parents to deduct money from their estate tax free and it better ensures that the money will be used to finance education.

However, if the grandparents of the child might help finance a future education, it might be in the best interest of all parties involved for parents to simply open a joint separate account where money intended for education can be earmarked. Then if the grandparents help out financially the money saved is for other priorities. Direct gifting to the child can be made to finance other college expenses such as books or room and board.

Best Strategies for Grandparents

Regardless of the method a person chooses to employ, there are non-financial issues to consider. Is college right for the child? Will giving a gift to a child 10-15 years from now still be desirable as well? While it is admirable to give the gift of education to grandchildren, one should also consider the unintended consequences of promising to pay for grandchildren’s education. If a promise has been made to pay for education, is this giving a signal to the parents that they don’t need to save for their children’s education? Since they know this major expense will be covered, will this be creating a sense of entitlement or inhibiting their motivation to succeed?

Recent reports have found that 80% of millionaires are first generation (not inheritors), and that many millionaires tend to live beneath their means while their inheriting children are more likely to spend more than they earn and not save. Many who inherit considerable wealth lack discipline if they were brought up in too nice of an environment. Rather than allowing young parents to believe they don’t have to save for their child’s college expenses due to an expected educational gift, it is highly recommended to set aside money and pay it directly to the institution when the grandchild reaches college age. This way there are no expectations by the parents and they have time to set aside money of their own for the same purpose.

Keep Student Loans Under Control

Private Student Loans (PSL)

According to Student Loan Borrower Assistance (dot) org, “In theory, private student loans are used to fill the gap between available federal aid, and what students and families can afford to pay out-of-pocket for college costs. In practice, unfortunately, many borrowers take out these higher cost loans without first exhausting their federal student assistance options.” PSLs lack the more affordable, fixed rates, and flexible repayment options that federal loans have. Prospective borrowers should exhaust federal grant and loan options before considering a private student loan.

So, Annie’s college is denying their students with an affordable means of obtaining financing for college by not providing federal student aid options for their students. PSLs should only be taken as a LAST RESORT, only after all other options for scholarships, grants, and federal loans are taken.

Interest will start to accrue the moment you take these loans out; there is no “in school” deferment on interest for private loans. So, the amount you borrow today, will grow while you’re in school and you’ll owe much more after graduation, if you don’t start repayment immediately. So many folks have a sticker shock after graduation when they get the bill with all that amortized interest tacked on to these pesky loans.

The good news about PSLs is that outside of bankruptcy, these loans are treated like any other credit card debt. This means that the creditors have a limited amount of time in which they can collect on the debt, also known as a Statute of Limitations (SOL). Each state has its own SOL laws, in California, creditors have Four (4) years to collect on a debt upon a written contract; and Six (6) years, if the contract is a Promissory Note.

Federal Student Loans (FSL)

There are several types of federal student loans, depending upon the type of education, school, and options available based on credit worthiness. The most important part to understand is when does the interest begin to accrue.

Subsidized SLs are the absolute BEST option for your education financing because these loans are (1) interest FREE while you’re in school; and (2) repayment does not begin until Six (6) months after you last attended school. Unsubsidized SLs, on the other hand, begin to accrue interest while in school, similar to the private loans.

By now you’ve probably heard about the various types of repayment programs for SLs. However, payment plans, like graduated, extended, and income based or income contingent repayment plan are only available for federal student loans, not private.

Reputable Credit Card Companies

Go to your bank and ask them if they carry credit cards, or if they can recommend a good company. Chances are, the answers will be yes, and yes. For unsecured cards, your bank may have less than great rates; but for cards secured by home equity or an equivalent security, your bank will probably have rates competitive with the best advertised prices out on the Web or television – and you have the added comfort of knowing you can trust them.

Go to the MasterCard or Visa websites and ask them for reputable card providers; they may be willing to provide you with a list. Or only apply for cards affiliated with a bank you have heard of, like Wachovia or Bank of America. If you are applying for a card with junk mail applications, look carefully at the application. Does it appear less than professional? Are there misspellings or odd errors? This may be a fraud.

Whoever you go to, keep a record of your application, and follow up on it a month or so later if you haven’t heard anything. The information you get that way may save your credit rating.

Hiring a Better Debt Management Firm

  1. Avoid any agency that calls you by phone or sends you spam: Most debt management firms advertise in the yellow pages or on the Web, but do not over-aggressively solicit clients. Therefore, there is a good chance any company which does so is not on the level. Debt management companies that follow a cold calling policy or send unsolicited emails will usually not be able to provide any solid references. Most of these companies do not even keep a reserve fund, which serves as a guarantee for the debtor that his creditors will be paid.
  2. Non-profit agencies do not necessarily offer better service: First, not all non-profit debt management firms offer their services free; some firms charge up to 15% of the debt amount. Being a non-profit organization does not make a debt management firm a better and more efficient service provider than those that charge for the services. In fact, companies charging for their service are under an obligation to free their clients of debt as efficiently as possible because they are making a profit from their work and their profitability is directly linked to their credibility and reputation in the market.
  3. Never part with credit card information on the phone: A reputed and honest debt management firm will never ask you to provide your credit card number or bank information on the phone. This is because they understand that callers can be impersonated; moreover, the increase in online frauds is reason enough for individuals in debt to be extra cautious when checking out debt management firms. Debt management companies that are acting in good faith will never ask a prospect or an existing client to part with sensitive information of any kind over the phone.
