More Money Might Mean Less Problems, Depending on How Much is Made, So Ameritech Has Some Tips for Getting a Raise

On Your Knees

For those making under $75k a year, give or take a few thousand depending on where someone lives, it may feel like an uphill battle towards financial stability. It can seem like just a few more dollars an hour would make things better. And largely, they may be right, since stagnant wages do nothing to stem the ever inflating prices of the economy. That means asking the boss for a raise so that affording necessities and things like student loan repayment are less of a burden. Ameritech Financial (Ameritech), a document preparation service company that helps borrowers apply for federal repayment programs wants to offer some tips for when asking for that much-needed raise.

“Student loans are difficult for many people to afford due to constantly intermingling circumstances. What might have been enough money yesterday suddenly doesn’t cut it with another family to take care of,” said Tom Knickerbocker, Executive Vice President of Ameritech. Keep track of everything completed, so there’s concrete proof of tangible contributions to the business. Every completed task, whether assigned or volunteered to cover, should be written down on a word doc and brought to the eventual meeting. Then also make sure to do some research on what the average salary of the held job makes. Competitive pay is important to keep in mind when asking about the raise but also making sure to not accidentally sell oneself cheap. When finally talking to whoever actually has authority to give a raise, aside from coming across as confident because of all the work put in before the meeting, its best to talk about the money being deserved, not needed.

Even with a raise, some people with still struggle with affording what they need to live with a decent standard of living. Ameritech can be there to help qualified borrowers apply for federal income-driven repayment plans that have a chance to lower their monthly payments and get them on track for student loan forgiveness after 20-25 years of remaining in the particular program. “We at Ameritech think borrowers shouldn’t be struggling with student loan repayment, so we do what we can to help them with the application and recertification process for these federal programs,” said Knickerbocker.
