A high-impact program for today’s borrowers
On Thursday, October 21, 2021, student loan expert Heather Jarvis joined ABHMS and ABC-USA for an engaging and practical presentation on managing student loans. Jarvis’ presentation covers:
- The big picture: student debt as part of your total financial picture
- How COVID 19 and the CARES Act impacts student loan borrowers
- Understanding the eligibility requirements of the various repayment plans
- Loan forgiveness from A to Z
- Tax issues specific to student loan borrowers
- Pros and cons of private student loan refinancing
Attendees in the live session were able to ask questions, so portions of the presentation are responses to specific situations faced by American Baptist pastors, parents, and students. Please note that the student loan landscape is changing rapidly, and information that was current in the presentation might have changed by the time the on-demand webinar is accessed and viewed.
Funding for this program was provided by the Lilly Endowment, Inc., partnering with ABHMS since 2016 to provide financial education and debt relief to American Baptist pastors.
