Taking That Deferment
Is a student loan deferment the right call in Amy's situation?
Dave's ANSWER: There's nothing wrong with it, but it's a pay-me-now, pay-me-later thing. Deferment does collect interest. You aren't really getting away from it. But it does help the cash flow and help to get the debt snowball rolling and give you a sense of accomplishment. I don’t think there’s any big problem with doing that.
