It’s an age-old question: Should you pay off your student loans or invest? The simplest answer is if your student loan debt has a higher interest rate than your expected return on investment, pay down your student loans first. If your investment earns a higher rate than your student loans will cost in interest, invest.
Many other variables, such as tax deductions and employer investment matching programs play into this equation. Use the Student Loan Payoff or Invest Calculator below to determine your repayment strategy.
