Ameritech Financial: Veterinarians Who Face High Balances of Student Debt Should Explore Affordable Repayment Options

ROHNERT PARK, Calif., March 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Veterinarians face astronomical costs for their degrees, forcing aspiring vets to take on high balances of veterinary school related debt. Veterinarians are a key component of a healthy society, however, and Americans can't afford to lose them to financial barriers. Ameritech Financial, a document preparation company that helps align federal student loan borrowers with programs that can potentially lower their monthly payments, encourages veterinarians to explore repayment options intended to help them stay current on their loans.

"Student loans are very common with individuals studying to become veterinarians because the degrees come with a price tag comparable to medical school or law school," said Tom Knickerbocker, Executive Vice President of Ameritech Financial. "Ameritech Financial helps federal loan borrowers who may feel lost when it comes to their student debt apply for repayment plans that keep them current and on top of their loans."

It's hard to discern all the reasons veterinary school has become so expensive. One vet school dean cites decreased state funding as a culprit for his public university's price tag. (That doesn't account for high prices at private institutions, though.) Whatever the reason, student loan debt looms large in many veterinarians' lives.   

But a world without veterinarians is not just a world where household pets miss out on necessary healthcare. For example, veterinarians maintain food safety by monitoring the health of livestock animals nationwide. Veterinarians are also crucial in identifying and helping mitigate the damage done by zoonotic diseases, or illnesses that pass from animals to humans, which are some of the most severe and widespread ailments affecting the globe. The cost of veterinary school should not be a barrier to filling these vital roles.

Ameritech Financial helps federal student loan borrowers identify, apply for, and recertify enrollment in repayment plans and certain forgiveness programs offered by the Department of Education. Ameritech Financial is a private, independent company not associated with any federal agency or loan servicer and operates a borrower-focused service. The aforementioned repayment plans may give qualified borrowers a lower payment so borrowers can stay up to date with their loans and avoid default.

"It's clear that veterinarians are very needed and we hope they are not being sidetracked by their student debt," said Knickerbocker. "If vets are struggling with their student loans, Ameritech Financial can provide a helpful service to guide them towards a healthier repayment situation."
