Stealing you: Identity theft and social media

 

Identity theft is a common consumer complaint in America and it affects thousands of lives every day. Students are quickly becoming the number one target for thieves. Methods for stealing their identities are changing and social media is rising as a common avenue for identity theft. How can your students safeguard against this? How is social media making them vulnerable? In this webinar you will learn what methods are being used, ways to help your students protect themselves, and the tools and methods available to help them avoid being victimized.

Borrow

 

The final installment of our five-part series based on the Federal Financial Literacy and Education Commission’s My Money Five. Borrowing money can help with some essential purchases and builds your credit, but interest costs can add up. And, if you borrow too much, you will have a large debt to be repaid. In this workshop, we will discuss common pitfalls and how to avoid them.

 

May 18 & May 20

Student loan repayment options

 

What are the most common (and important) questions asked by student loan borrowers? In this workshop we will cover the basics you need to provide when counseling your students, including when repayment starts, how to make payments, what are the repayment plan options, what to do if you have trouble making payments and more!

 

May 25 & May 27

Student loan deferment, forbearance, cancellation and forgiveness

 

Repayment, deferment, forbearance and cancellation—all of these terms can be found in most student loan agreements or promissory notes. But what do they mean? How do they work? When should you use them? Understanding the details of repayment can save your students time and money, and possibly their credit score!
