Please support our sponsor Pearson Ravitz if you are in the market for disability insurance and especially if you are early in your career for the best rates.
We talk about types of student loans (Federal direct and plus, private, etc.)
We talk loan strategies in relation to USPLF loan forgiveness program. He goes into good detail about how to time your payments including not paying during the first half of your intern year if going for forgiveness. Ben says you almost never want to refinance early in residency which can run counter to the advice you may have heard. In his opinion the forgiveness program may not go away despite the headlines you read.
