  • Christie Arkovich and Parent Plus LoansEpisode 99:Christie Arkovich and Parent Plus Loans

    In this episode of the podcast we talk, again, to Christie Arkovich about student loan debt relief. 

    Did your parents co-sign for your student loan? Did your parents borrow money to pay for your education? Federal Parent Plus loans are exactly that, money that mom and/or dad borrow so their child can go to school.  In most cases, the child has an agreement to pay back mom and dad, but this agreement has no impact on the Federal Student Loan and its repayment.  So what happens if the child cannot pay back the loan, in other words pay back the parents?  Unfortunately mom and dad are still on the hook to the loan company. Christie has some good suggestions to help ease the pressure on mom and dad.

    Christie and I also talk about a new Fannie Mae program where the homeowner can borrow money secured by a second mortgage against their home, to pay off their student loans - basically converting student loan debt into mortgage debt.  You'll hear why I think this is a HORRIBLE idea, and you'll hear Christie's take on Fannie Mae's offer to help student loan borrowers with this new loan product.

    If you have questions, or if you're struggling to pay back your student loans, you can contact Christie at 813-258-2808, www.ChristieArkovich.com, www.TampaBankruptcyLawyer.com
