Protecting Student Loan Borrowers—Now More Than Ever

The pandemic environment has generated a great deal of concern for student loan borrowers. There is fear of financial failure, loan status confusion, and general misinformation being shared online. Add to this an increase in financial fraudsters and we're seeing a highly vulnerable and stressed population.

1 out of 3 student loan borrowers have been contacted by an organization to "help" manage their loans for a fee or promised loan savings or forgiveness.
