Sad commentary on my professional life… I get excited (okay maybe even “giddy”) every time I discover a new online calculator that helps make loan repayment more understandable and easy. I collect calculators like other people collect coins, stamps or sports memorabilia. But the good news is that I am now prepared to share the most price pieces of my “loan repayment calculator” collection with you.
Here are some frequently asked questions or scenarios related to loan repayment and the links to online calculators that will help “estimate” an answer for you. My one disclaimer … some of the sites are specific to individual companies or private enterprises . I am in no way endorsing these sites or companies above any other competing sites and companies. I have just found the links below to be very useful in lifting the “veil of secrecy” from loan repayment. Of course the most effective way to use these calculators is to also schedule an individual loan repayment counseling session with our office!
