Posted April 12, 2013
WRAL Reader Question
I Have $70,000 in student loan debt (Alaska Student Loans and Federal (AES). I am 59 with a couple of period of unemployment (thus deferral) in the past 5 years.
My month payments are 5-6 months behind; constantly trying to make a payment to stay out of collections. $750 a month. What can I do?
I will pay on these until I retire (maybe I can make it to 70) and still will not have these paid off. What can I do. I tried to right thing and went back to school at 44. I have a decent job, but the debt is really stressful.
Rather than copy and paste all my advice on student loan debt, I think my guide will have the answers you are looking for. See The Ultimate Guide to Dealing With Student Loans You Can’t Afford.
The student load debt is becoming a crushing burden on aging consumers. At least the good news is there are good resources and options in my guide to help you lower those payments.
