We will aim to cover questions such as:

  • How do I qualify for the $10,000 federal student loan forgiveness?
  • What do I do if I've defaulted on my student loans?
  • What is the difference between taking the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion vs Foreign Tax Credit for my student loan payments?
  • How do I get the best exchange rate to transfer money back to the US to make payments?
  • Are there any other options available to get my student loan debt and payments down?

This event is for you if:

  • you think you qualify for the $10,000 loan forgiveness but you're not totally sure
  • defaulted on your student loans and don't know how to face it
  • you've lived abroad for a long time but don't know what your student loan options are now
  • you're concerned you can't afford to pay off your student loan, or
  • you already know a lot but you just want a straightforward answer for a specific issue
