If you’ve been struggling to pay your student loans off in the past year, Google is now offering you the ability to use the finance portal to pay them off.
To be clear, this is not an automated process, it’s a manual process, and it will require some input from you.
But Google is offering a $5-per-month fee that will help cover the costs of paying off your loans faster.
You’ll need to be able to pay the balance in full every month, but it’s worth noting that the service doesn’t include any forgiveness options.
You can still opt to pay all or part of your loans off every month (and the money is paid back in full), but it will only be in increments of $5.
The full $5 fee will be waived for new users and veterans who have been enrolled in Google’s student loan program for at least five years.
The site is currently only available in the United States and Canada.
The process requires you to log into the Google Finance portal.
Clicking on the “Go to Google Finance” link will open the “Pay Off Your Student Loan” section.
Select the amount you’re interested in, and you’ll need Google’s credit card processor to complete the payment.
The credit card issuer will process your payment and send you an email letting you know that you’ve paid off your loan.
To make sure your payment is completed, click on the payment history link.
At the bottom of the page, you’ll see a section titled “Requesting Payment.”
Click on the button next to “Request Payment.”
If your payment doesn’t appear, click the “Notify me when this request is completed” button.
The payment will appear in your Google Finance account and Google will notify you when your payment has been processed.
To complete the process, you will need to sign into the site once more, and once again, you can opt to keep your payment in a single payment.
To keep your loan payments in the same account, you should choose to continue to pay a minimum of $15 per month.
To get the best value, you’d want to make sure you’re paying your entire student loan balance every month.
Google is currently not offering a credit card for the process.
