  • Student debt in the United States continues to grow exponentially
  • It's difficult to identify your federal student debt options because there's so much regulation

"I gained a wealth of knowledge and was enlightened with helpful information during your workshop. You had an excellent presentation and captivated everyone's attention. I liked your dynamic style of engagement too! I am currently working towards Public Service Loan Forgiveness; I have direct loans and I have been in the Income-Based Repayment Plan since 2012. Thank you for welcoming questions and speaking individually with attendees afterwards." - A satisfied customer

"I just wanted to thank you for meeting with me for loan counseling. I would not have been fully aware of all of the options I have, especially as a teacher, that will help me to get rid of my loans as quickly and as cheaply as possible. I left our first meeting confident in what steps I should take next and after the second time we talked everything I needed to do was set up and in motion as I begin to pay off my loans in an affordable way on my teacher salary. I would recommend that all MTA members should speak with a counselor to help lead them in the right direction for loan forgiveness and repayment options." - Matt, first-year educator 

"Hi Gordon. Very well done and informative webinar. Thanks. I would like you to dissect my daughter’s debt and help us choose the right route for us to take. I am the co-signer on her loans and am really worried about her situation. I want to help her with the payments but want to do some type of consolidation. You were right on when you said  'one size does not fit all' and the Navients and Sallie Maes of this world don't seem to care or want to help. Let me know how I can get this counseling please!" - A satisfied MTA member
