cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here to explain and tell us why refinancing could affect borrowers. >> reporter: if you are a borrower with a graduate or parent plus loan you might save more by refinancing because interest on those loans have been close to 7% or higher in the past decade. now, listen, parents, you may have an even better chance because your credit history is established and probably a little better than you kids. so you could be quite appealing to lenders. undergraduate loans have interest rates around 5% in recent years making them hard to beat. don't be lured by a low variable rate. it looks good today but your payments could increase dramatically in the coming years. just pay attention to how much the lower rate will save you over the life of the loan. of course, if you can pay it off quickly maybe in a period of a few years, that variable rate might work for you. >> jill, what about the number
of private lenders has surged recently. so which ones are the most beneficial? >> reporter: well, if you are a prime borrower meaning you graduated from a name brand school you earn a 6 figure salary and you're carrying a large debt load, check out sofi and common bond. they favor safe borrowers but these startups and more traditional lenders like citizens bank or some state authorities have certainly grown more comfortable with the level of risk that they are assuming. that's because the economy gets better more people have jobs. that allows a wider population of borrowers to consider refinancing. you cannot refinance your federal student loans within the federal system. but that may make you think, oh, i should just get out and go to the private market. but you could be giving up some very important options. loan forgiveness for public service jobs and the ability to enroll in an income-based repayment plan. to help you shop around and
compare your offers you may want to check out credible and overture marketplace, both providing borrowers with a cool platform that helps you look at very different individualized offers all in the same place. so check that out. look, interest rates are on the move now could be a very good time to refinance. >> something to consider this morning. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger, thank you. ♪[ music ] it is 5:42. you might be a fan of wine but would you bathe in it? we'll show you where it's become a tradition. >> and parents you want to hear this. some good news about kids' booster seats and their safety. we'll have the story just ahead. ,,,,,,
