Apparently whether your loan is subsidized or non-subsidized determines how long your interest is frozen on a school loan. Anthony was given way more money than he needed for his classes but we held onto the total amount anyway, since shortly after he got it, I lost my job and we thought, maybe we'll just give it back a little later in case this situation is worse than we think. So I get a job and we're probably going to pay off a big chunk soon, but it just slips our minds and we figure we have til the end of the year before interest starts accruing. Uh, not so much. We just racked up $800 in interest and got a bill for it. Apparently, his loan was sold and changed status (subsidized/non, I'm not sure) so now we owe interest. POOP. His old-old loans are still frozen and not accruing, so I know we are somehow getting screwed here. I don't know a lot about this since I let him handle all this himself.Then I turned in my "proof of new insurance" papers to Twan's employer too late and it's past the 30 day cut off (I'm within 30 days of when I did the paperwork, but apparently the deadline is 30 days from your start date -- BS). So now I have to pay for two insurance policies through the end of the year. So that's like $400 there.So in one day, I found out we wasted nearly $1000. I drank several beers yesterday.
