7 Tips To Make The Most of Private Student Loan Consolidation

Just as the national student loan debt has risen, so has the popularity of student loan consolidation. The concept has several advantages and disadvantages. Possible benefits would be eliminating the need to juggle several different private student loans by reducing it to just one with a single lender.

In addition, you may be able to negotiate a lower monthly payment; you’ll only have to deal with the rules and regulations of one lender, versus having the rules and regulations of many lenders; and you might be able to lock in a lower fixed interest rate than you have on your existing loans. Also, if you should find yourself unemployed or sick, it’s easier to get leniency from a single lender than trying to work it out with multiple ones. […]
