  1. I recently resubmitted/renewed my school loan payment and I had changes where I am now taking care of my partner, as he lost his job, and my payment went up?? I don’t understand how that could happen, it’s like they did not acknowledge I am caring for another person, my payment should have lowered. I am not sure what to do. I guess I will write them and ask how they came up with a larger number and see if I can get them to review it.

  2. The idea is very interesting and seems to be working. You have a vested interest to have a great job and thus return the money. On the other hand if the economy is bad and or you are out of a job then you don't pay.

  3. wow 6% interest of 1.56 trillion in student loan debt…….the government is raking it in! The ISA will take money out of the government's pocket I don't know how they will feel about that?!

  4. Don’t fall for this. You will have to pay at least 2.5 times the amount of initial funding for the ISA. Pay the loan off so it will cost you less.
