Panic with Friends: Bobby Matson of Payitoff.io on Navigating the Complex World of Student Loan Repayment
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT PODCAST IF YOU HAVE KIDS, FRIENDS WITH COLLEGE DEBT ….SO PLEASE SHARE
Before I get into the details of this episode some quick links on student debt to share on how Payitoff can help people navigate all the college forgiveness confusion and also refinancing opportunities with API Partner
I’m excited to have Bobby Matson, founder of Payitoff.io, back on the podcast. The last time he was on the show was in April of 2020, less than a month into the global COVID panic. Since then, 45 million plus Americans with student debt have kicked the can down the road. Until now.
Bobby is a self-taught coder. He and his wife had student loan debt to deal with, so they built a product called Payitoff.io to help sort it out. Their API allows financial apps to empower borrowers with ways to assess and address their student debt while freeing up cash to invest or spend.
And while there’s been a “pause” in repayment, student debt did not go away. The problem was just brushed aside for a couple of years. During those few years, Bobby and his team went and built other debt API products. But as repayments are starting up again, the “phones have been ringing off the hook” as everybody tries to catch up. Bobby and his team stayed in the game, didn’t overspend their VC money, and kept things under control. Full disclosure – Social Leverage is an investor in Payitoff.io
