Covering the Gap: Pieces of the Puzzle to Help Pay Your Education Bill     

Understanding education balances can be confusing. Whether you’re trying to address the costs or beginning to plan for higher education, this review is for you.  Join Linda Pacewicz and Daniel Wray of PHEAA’s PA Forward Private Student Loan team for a 1-hour webinar that will emphasize best practices (such as seeking grants and scholarships first), remind families about additional resources (such as PA529 and payment plans), and review private/alternative loans as a last resort in the process of covering the gap and keeping balances affordable. The discussion will also include the basics of credit, what factors impact a credit score, how can a credit score be improved, and the effects of credit on your borrowing capability.

November 4th 6:30pm;   November 11th  6:30 pm;   November 16th Noon;   November 30th Noon
