Many times clients will come to us and say that they are being called about student loans and that they have no idea about any student loans that they may owe. For most people, student loans were obtained years ago and the paperwork for the student loans has long since been misplaced or lost. For any federal government student loans, please visit the following website, www.nslds.ed.gov, at this site you will need to request a pin number. Be sure to safeguard your personal private pin number. This will allow you to get all of your federal government student loan information. It will show what you owe as far as student loan debt and to whom you owe it. Please ensure that you make a copy of all of the student loan information once you get it and keep it in a safe place.

If you do not have a way to get to the internet, you can also call a toll-free number at 1-800-433-3243 to get your student loan information. However, the best and most complete way is by visiting the website www.nslds.ed.gov. Of course, if you have not already obtained your free credit reports as you are allowed to obtain all of them once per year, please get all of your free credit reports at www.annualcreditreport.com.  Please visit our firm blog post for a detailed explanation on how to obtain your true free credit reports. Please feel free to contact our office that is nearest to you if you would like to set up a free, private consultation to discuss your student loan situation.
