Mentor is a personal finance comparison marketplace that connects consumers with leading financial brands. We help drive smarter decisions through actionable advice, educational tools, dynamic calculators, and insightful reviews.

We believe in full transparency in financial services. That’s one of the reasons we created Mentor – to help level the playing field between large financial institutions and you. We provide articles, comparison tools, calculatorsand other content (“Mentor Content”) for free and for educational and informational purposes only. Mentor Content is not intended to provide financial, legal, investment, accounting or tax advice. Our tools and calculators are for illustrative purposes only and are not guaranteed to be accurate. The results and default figures shown in our tools and calculators are hypothetical and may not apply to your individual, unique situation. We are not affiliated with or endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education or any other government agency. All the editorial content on Mentor is independent and written solely by Mentor. The content and reviews on Mentor are based solely on the author’s opinions, and is not provided, approved, endorsed or reviewed by any financial institution, bank, credit card issuer, hotel, airline or any partner or other entity.

It is also important to us to share how we earn money. We are not a lender, broker, credit card issuer or financial or investment adviser. Mentor also does not provide financial, legal, investment, accounting or investment advice. We are a for-profit company and receive compensation from our partners if you apply for and receive one of their products. This helps us to support our website and continue to offer free content, analysis, tools, resources and reviews so we can fulfill our mission and continue to be one of the leading sources on personal finance. The products featured on this website are from our partners who compensate us. This may impact which companies we review, the products we evaluate, and where and how a product appears on a page. We receive compensation from a partner when you apply for and receive a product through Mentor. Any compensation that Mentor receives from its advertising partners may affect how and where products appear on the site, including, for example, the order in which a lender or credit card appears in a table. This also may influence which companies or products we write about or review, but this doesn’t affect our reviews or recommendations, which are based on independent research. Mentor is not compensated for writing a favorable review of a product or service.
