Student Loan Refinancing
Student Loan Refinancing
FIRST REPUBLIC BANK - $200 BACK TO YOU!
The best fixed rates by FAR are with First Republic Bank. What’s the “catch?” You must live near a physical branch (NYC, Boston, Socal, Norcal and others) and use them as your main checking account. This also becomes a private loan and they are not forgiven at death. If you pay back your loans within 2 years you get most of the interest you paid back!
I refinanced part of my student loans with First Republic and have been very happy with their truly personal banking service.
SPLASH FINANCIAL - $500+ BACK TO YOU!
Splash emphasizes customer service as an essential part of the student loan refinance process and were recently selected as NerdWallet’s 2019 Award Winner in the category of ‘Best Refinancing Lenders: Customer Service’.
They offer fixed and variable rates with terms ranging from 5 to 15 years and allow U.S. citizens to refinance up to $300,000 of student debt.
One of their more unique benefits includes the ability to release a non-spousal co-signer from the refinanced loan after 12 months of on-time payments.
Credible makes it really easy to check what rate(s) you will qualify for. The “Kayak” of student loan refinancing, you’ll get rates to several different companies in one place.
Receive a bonus of $750 when you close a loan through Credible.
I’m a big fan of CommonBond with their socially minded company. Every time a loan is refinanced they help fund a child’s education abroad. They offer unemployment protection. Refinance with them and receive $200.

Physician Financial Services
Lawrence B. Keller, CFP, CLU, ChFC, RHU, LUTCF has been in the insurance and financial services industry since 1990. Unlike medicine, which has a standardized path that physicians must take to gain the education, training and experience requirements necessary to obtain board certification, the insurance and financial services industry does not. Working with an agent that is familiar with the underwriting of both disability and life insurance policies for physicians can all but guarantee a smooth underwriting process in which the desired outcome is likely. He was a speaker for the inaugural White Coat Investor Conference in Park City, Utah in early 2018. While he might not be a doctor’s first phone call regarding their insurance needs, he is often their last.

Since 1993, Set For Life Insurance has been a national leader in helping thousands of physicians with their disability insurance needs. They have the largest portfolio of available exclusive discounts in the country. Set for Life also has the largest availability of unisex rates nationwide helping women save significantly.

Stephanie Pearson, MD, FACOG, brings the experience of a physician into the disability and life insurance market. Injured in the prime of her career, the Board Certified OB/GYN took an unexpected journey to becoming an advocate and advisor for physician insurance. Scott Ravitz, a longtime broker and insurance expert to the medical community, was a natural advisor and behind-the-scenes colleague for Stephanie. Today, the two have officially partnered to offer unique industry insights and expertise with incredible care. Together, Stephanie and Scott advise and advocate for physicians about the importance of protecting life’s most valuable financial assets. The partnership of PearsonRavitz wields the duo’s powerful combined skill set — and has made them sought-after experts on the basics and nuances of disability and life insurance for doctors.

As your business grows, a spreadsheet won't cut it for bookkeeping. The next logical step is to use a bookkeeping software -- or is it? That still requires you to input transactions or at least monitor them if you connect your business accounts. What about having your own bookkeeper? Sounds expensive, right? Bench fills this need for online entrepreneurs and other small businesses at a price you can afford. I was super happy to offload this task to a professional!
