My Guest on the Show…

Robert Farrington from The College Investor – an expert in everything student loans, is here to tell us everything we need to know about Student Loans and what to expect with the passing of the CARES Act.

  • How long do you have to completely stop making payments?
  • How will the interest be accrued on your student loan?
  • What about income-driven student loans?
  • What if you have a PSLF student loan?
  • What if your set up on auto-debt – what should you do?
  • What if your student loan is currently under tax offsets or under collections?

Before you just pay your student loans, always make sure you’re getting the best rate. Robert shows us here how to find the best student loan rates and what the current rates are today.

Also, Robert explains why right now is such a good time when for student loan borrowers – especially for those who are delinquent on their loan payments.

Chris Petrie

Chris (Peach) Petrie is a personal finance expert, money coach, speaker and podcaster.

In 2011, Chris and his family were exhausted from living paycheck-to-paycheck and facing a mountain of debt. They started going against the society standards of misbehaving with money and made the decision to take back control of their lives and money. Within seven months they paid off $52,000, started saving like crazy and began building real wealth.

The word spread fast and Chris started showing friends how to create a budget over dinner. Soon after he started showing their friends how to do the same and eventually Chris started teaching personal finance classes around the community. As the need for the classes grew, Chris launched Money Peach in 2015.

Money Peach was created to help everyday people remove the stress and fear of money by showing them how to save more, make more, and keep more of their money.

Chris Peach has been featured in places like Business Insider, The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, and CheddarTV.

When Chris isn’t at “work” he can be found at the Crossfit gym or riding on the fire truck — Chris is also a full-time firefighter in Phoenix, Arizona.
