5:38 am
plan. hopefully the first of many financial plans. and that's connected to cash flow. this is not a budget, okay? it's a process. it allows you to track what's coming in and going out. it's really a way to find the money to fund surveyor just financial goals. now, most banks offer apps to help you out. you can try mint, digit, or you need a budget. next build a balance sheet to understand what you own, your assets, and what you oh, liabilities. and, of course, we want to get you in the habit of checking your credit reports, if you find a mistake, do notify the credit reporting agency. stay on top of this because we need those errors to be removed. >> all right, jill. 70% of college grads have student loans so how should they manage that debt? >> reporter: well, i think we need a strategy, right? and it starts with that balance sheet i just spoke about. you're going to take the liability side which you oh, you expand it. so write down each loan, each college loan and have a
5:39 am
separate line item. it's interest-free. the payment amount -- its interest rate. the payment amount. and note whether it's a federal or private loan. this has a nice benefit and gets the kids wrapping their arms around what's out there, right? if you think it's going to be hard to meet your payments, please do. check out whether or not you qualify for a federal loan alternative repayment plan. go to for federal lines only. if you are making money, this is exciting, try to make extra payments towards the highest interest debt. work your way down and this will help you accelerate your payoff time. now, if you are heading to grad school, remember, you may be able to postpone or defer your education loan payments. be careful, though. examiners at the consumer financial protection bureau have found that some student loan servicers, they are acting on incorrect information. they don't know you have deferred it, right? so because of these errors a lot of students are spending time trying to reverse erroneous charges.
