Citizens Bank

 

Citizens Financial Group, Inc. is one of the nation’s oldest and largest financial institutions. Citizens offers a broad range of retail and commercial banking products and services to individuals, small businesses, middle-market companies, large corporations and institutions.

As a leader in student lending with more than 40 years’ experience, Citizens has underwritten more than $10 billion combined In School and Education Refinance Loans within the past five years to help students, graduates and families with their student lending needs. We believe in helping families fund the college dream with flexible repayment options to fit their budget, competitive fixed and variable interest rates, and no application and origination fees that are designed specifically for undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees and for parents, too. Plus, flexible, refinance options for recent graduates and parents.


The CARES Act initially suspended Federal student loan payments until September 30th; however, this relief has been extended to December 31st. It’s important that you understand this relief policy and assess your private and/or Federal student loans while keeping in mind key repayment considerations.

To ensure you know your options, Citizens invites you to attend a live webinar which will highlight repayment strategies and the potential impact on your cash flow, along with details about the Federal student loan payment relief extension.
 

Who is this session best for? Anyone who is paying back their own student loan debt or a family member’s.
