Letter: Mass MoCA Strike
Letter to the Editor,
04:00PM / Wednesday, March 13, 2024

Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:35PM / Tuesday, March 12, 2024
If you have student loans, you likely received a "payment vacation" over the past few years, due to legislation related to COVID-19. But if you're like millions of other borrowers, you may have recently been required to resume your payments. How will this affect your overall financial situation?   Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the effect on your monthly cash flow. But the amount of pressure you feel will depend on your income and the size of the required payments.
