Personal Capital

Personal Capital’s free tools were created for the person who wants to GSD. They offer free financial planning and investment tools, including a top-notch retirement calculator and college savings calculator. But a great feature is they aggregate all of your accounts (bank accounts, debt, investments, retirement), so you can log into one spot and see your full financial picture. This was a game changer for my financial organization and confidence.

Sofi

One of the best things that helped me climb out of six figures of student loan debt was refinancing. When I refinanced, Sofi was new on the scene and I didn’t know what to expect. My experience with them was fantastic. From responsive customer service to other perks (like career counseling), Sofi has you covered. And, once you are a member you be eligible for discounted rates for your other lending needs.
