    A SAVE student loan could be the key to investing in your future self

    A SAVE student loan could be the key to investing in your future self

    After several years of not having to pay student loans - or no interest added to them - everyone is back to paying their full payments.  Brian Walsh, the head of advice and planning with SoFi, says a SAVE student loan program may be the way forward.  But there have been changes.


    Currently, if you missed a student loan payment during the first year, it wouldn't be reported to a credit bureau.  That is now going away.
     The percentage of your discretionary income used to calculate your monthly payments is changing -- but currently is facing a court fight.

    BEST OF: If you love your loo, only flush pee and poo

    BEST OF: If you love your loo, only flush pee and poo

    Flushable wipes aren't actually flushable.  And neither are make-up removers and baby wipes.  Leland Myers, Executive Director of the Wasatch Front Water Quality Council and Jill Jones, District Manager for Central Davis Sewer District explains how expensive these 'conveniences' can be for homeowners. 




    Our sewer pipes were designed for our sanitary needs.  Not for items which don't break down over time, like so-called flushable wipes.  And it's costing many cities over $3,000,000.00 a year of taxpayer money to fix.  Learn how dispose of them properly.
