How EdFed Helped others!
EdFed helped me out a lot! My student loan balance was not as high as most of my friends, so I didn't even know if consolidating would be worth my time. The loan counselors at EdFed really explained the benefits of consolidating and took the time to do a comparison of my total loan costs with and without consolidating. Even though my loan balance was not large, my monthly payments were reduced by almost 50% through my EdFed loan consolidation! This provided a lot of relief. Now, I know I can make my student loan payments, and I still have plenty of money to do the things I want to. Thank you, EdFed, for walking me through this process.

Education is one of the most basic right of any human, but with the increase in prices and the costs involved in education this has made these rights turn into a privilege which very few can enjoy. Any normal person today in the whole of United States has to take an education loan at one point of time to pay for their education fees.
