Student loan debt continues to be a problem in this country with over $1 trillion owed nationally. A large percentage of them are struggling to make payments or cannot make them at all. They are sliding towards default and an even bigger financial problem.

In the face of this, there have been a lot of ads lately, as well as articles on the web, that tout refinancing of your student loans as a solution to those unaffordable monthly payments. They say that you can get a better interest rate by doing so! While this may be a solution for some borrowers, for others, it could actually make things worse!

That is why in this episode of the podcast, I wanted to talk about the refinancing option and give some advice on when it can be the solution for you. You cannot work towards financial freedom if you are being held back by unaffordable debt that you can seldom wipe out.
