Using a cost-efficient repayment strategy will increase how quickly you reach you financial goals.

Cost-efficiency is the relationship between monthly payments and long-term cost. If there’s a plan/strategy that minimizes both of these costs, that’ll be your most cost-efficient repayment option.

The question is, what is most cost-efficient repayment option for you? Is it Income-Driven Repayment? Is it refinancing into a private loan? Is it one of the standard federal repayment options?

There are over 15 repayment options to choose from. When researching these options, many look similar. But what they equate to in terms of short-term and long-term cost is drastically different. It’s important to not only understand how these options work, but also what your individual case looks like mapped our within each option.
