Before You Begin
My Debt Killer was designed for you to dive right in; however, there are a handful of steps that may improve your use of the calculator. Consider taking some time to work through the following steps prior to running your multiple loan payoff scenarios.
Identify Your Loans
It’s hard to keep track of all the details when you have multiple loans. Taking time prior to running your multiple loan debt payoff scenarios can help ensure you are working through all the strategies possible. Consider making a list of your loans to include the following:
- current balances,
- interest rates,
- minimum required payments,
- current payments,
- defered payment options, and
- interest only options.
Consolidate Your Debt
Debt consolidation can be a huge benefit when managing multiple loans. Consider consolidating student loans, personal loans, or credit card debt into a single loan with the lowest interest rate possible. Ignore the balances; focus on the interest rate. The key to debt consolidation is ensuring that the combined loan has an interest rate lower than all the loans now included.
Reduce the Minimum Payments and Interest Rates
Approaching your lenders may seem daunting, but working to identify how you can decrease your minimum payments or refinance to a lower rate can increase your multiple loan payoff options. Focus on freeing up cash that you may otherwise be paying in high minimum payments or interest to better distribute that cash across your loan payoff plan.
Make One Time Large Payments
That graduation money or sign-on bonus you’ve received can get you off to a great start in killing your debt. A lump-sum payment to either pay off or pay down a loan will help tremendously. When considering a one-time payment focus on your loans with the highest interest rate, not the highest balance.
Identify the Total Amount You Can Pay Each Month
Finally, identify the total amount each month that you’re comfortable putting toward your multiple loan payoff strategy. Take into account all of the considerations above and ensure that the total amount you can pay each month fits into your budget. With all of this hard work behind you, you’re more prepared than ever to kill your debt and define the multiple loan payoff strategy that will work best for you!
