BEAVERTON, Ore. & MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Student loan debt is increasing every year, and First Tech Federal Credit Union, the nation’s premier credit union serving technology companies, is ready to help. First Tech recently announced a number of refinancing options now available to its members.
Designed with flexibility in mind, the Student Loan Refinance Program features payment plans that can grow with First Tech members’ careers, or target the quick payoff of debt. One of the refinancing options is a fixed-term loan with an annual percentage rate as low as 3.10 percent, and equal monthly payments consisting of principal and interest. Another is an interest-only loan with an APR as low as 5.60 percent, featuring lower interest-only payments for the first few years of the loan, followed by larger payments of principal and interest.
A dedicated student loan specialist is available to help members find the loan that best meets their needs. There is no cost or obligation for a consultation, and there are no application or origination fees to refinance. Members who refinance are eligible for exclusive offers, such as .25 percent off First Tech’s standard auto loan rate.
“With student loans a reality for so many graduates, the burden can get in the way of people’s future,” said Sandi Papenfuhs, Senior Vice President of Consumer Lending at First Tech Federal Credit Union. “We’ve always been proud of the innovative products and solutions we offer for a variety of financial situations. Our new refinancing options allow recent graduates to work with an organization they know and trust to tailor a solution that allows them to take the next steps toward living the life they want now and in the future.”
