It’s good that Laurel Road actually wants to hear from you on how they can improve their services not only for you, but for other people who are going to refinance with them.

I think it’s great to have products for doctors because we have an unusual trajectory where we have high earning potential, but don’t always qualify for much on paper.

  1. Estimated Student Loan Refinance Post-residency Payment Examples
    Borrowers employed full time as an intern, resident, fellow, or similar postgraduate trainee at the time of loan disbursement are eligible to make $100 monthly payments throughout their training (“Residency Period”). These payments may not be enough to cover all of the interest that accrues on the loan. Unpaid accrued interest will be added to the loan principal and monthly payments of principal and interest will begin when the Residency Period ends. Assumptions: Repayment examples shown below are based on an original loan amount of $100,000 and assume that you make $100 monthly payments during the Residency Period of 36 months before the full repayment term begins. Repayment examples do not include any discounts.

    Annual Percentage Rate (“APR”): This term represents the actual cost of financing to the borrower over the life of the loan expressed as a yearly rate.

    Interest Rate: A simple annual rate that is applied to an unpaid balance.

    Variable Rates: The current index for variable rate loans is derived from the 30-day Average Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) and changes in the SOFR index may cause your monthly payment to increase. Although the rate will vary after you are approved, it will never exceed 15.00%. There is no limit on the amount your interest rate can increase at one time. The Index is currently published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (“New York Fed”). If the Index is no longer available, it will be replaced by a replacement Index according to the terms of the promissory note.

  2. A $550 cash bonus offered on new student loan refinance applications from active Member Name readers. The loan application must close in order to qualify for the bonus which will be paid within 45 days of closing. Existing Laurel Road members are not eligible. This offer cannot be combined with any other discounts from Laurel Road affiliated partners or employers nor the Student Loan Refer-a-Friend Program.

  3. Checking your rate with Laurel Road only requires a soft credit pull, which will not affect your credit score. To proceed with an application, a hard credit pull will be required, which may affect your credit score.

  4. 0.80% discount includes a 0.55% discount for monthly qualifying direct deposits of $7500 or more credited to a Laurel Road Linked Checking account, and a 0.25% discount for AutoPay. The Laurel Road Linked Checking discount is available to borrowers who open a Laurel Road Linked Checking account simultaneously while refinancing their student loans with Laurel Road. You may also be able to utilize a checking account opened simultaneously with a prior Laurel Road student loan refinance to obtain a discount on your new Laurel Road student loan refinance. Borrowers will receive a 0.25% rate discount for their first three monthly billing cycles. Starting with the fourth billing cycle and continuing with each billing cycle thereafter, the rate discount applied to each billing cycle will be based on the amount deposited via qualifying Automated Clearing House (ACH) transactions into the Laurel Road Linked Checking account during the preceding calendar month; 0.25% for deposits between $2,500 and $7,499 per month and 0.55% for deposits $7,500 or greater per month. Qualifying ACH direct deposit transactions include most payroll, Social Security, pension and government benefits deposits. To continue to receive the discount for the fourth billing cycle, you must begin making qualifying ACH deposits to your Laurel Road Linked Checking account during the second month after your loan funds. Note that the discount is only available to the primary checking account owner and is not available to a joint checking account owner. If the primary account owner is no longer an owner on the checking account or the account is closed, the discount on their student loan will cease. Discounts subject to change without notice and cannot be combined with the Laurel Road Linked Savings discount. For more information on the Laurel Road Checking Account visit (laurelroad.com/refinance-student-loans/checking/#rates-fees-jump. If you choose to make monthly payments automatically by electronic fund transfer (EFT) from a bank account, the rate will decrease by 0.25% and will increase back if you stop making monthly payments (or we stop accepting) automatically by EFT from your bank account. The 0.25% AutoPay/EFT Discount will not reduce the monthly payment; instead, the discount is applied to the principal to help pay the loan down faster.

  5. After loan disbursement, if a borrower documents a qualifying economic hardship, we may agree in our discretion to allow for forbearance of payments for one or more 3-month time periods (however, a minimum of twelve (12) months are required between any two forbearance periods). Borrowers with a loan term of at least ten (10) years are eligible for up to twelve (12) months of forbearance over the life of the loan; borrowers with a loan term less than ten (10) years are eligible for one (1) month for every year of the loan term (e.g., if a borrower’s loan term is five (5) years they are eligible for up to five (5) months of forbearance over the life of the loan). Borrowers seeking an economic hardship forbearance due to unemployment must have made twelve (12) consecutive monthly payments prior to a forbearance request to be eligible. For any other forbearance due to economic hardship, borrowers must have made nine (9) consecutive monthly payments prior to a forbearance request to be eligible. All requests for forbearance are subject to review, including the review of acceptable documentation (including updating documentation) of the nature and expected duration of the borrower's economic hardship. During any period of forbearance, interest will continue to accrue. Unless otherwise noted, at the end of the forbearance period, any unpaid accrued interest will be capitalized and be added to the remaining principal amount of the loan.

  6. AutoPay / EFT Discount: If you choose to make monthly payments automatically by electronic fund transfer (EFT) from a bank account, the rate will decrease by 0.25% and will increase back if you stop making monthly payments (or we stop accepting) automatically by EFT from your bank account. The 0.25% AutoPay/EFT Discount will not reduce the monthly payment; instead, the discount is applied to the principal to help pay the loan down faster.

  7. You will earn 2.0% in Cashback Rewards for each $1 spent on eligible Purchases if you redeem your Cashback Rewards towards your Student Loan with an eligible servicer. This equates to $0.02 in Cashback Rewards, for each $1 spent. For example, if you spend $100, you will earn $2.00 in Student Loan Credit. You will earn 1.0% in Cashback Rewards for each $1 spent on eligible Purchases if redeemed for a statement credit. This equates to $0.01 in Cashback Rewards, for each $1 spent. For example, if you spend $100, you will earn $1.00 in Cashback Rewards. For more information visit https://www.laurelroad.com/cash-back-credit-card/#disclaimer.
