Dec 18, 2012 A new student debt plan, known as 'Pay As You Earn', could make monthly payments smaller and some debts disappear altogether.
Oct 16, 2012 Today the nonpartisan New America Foundation is out with a report that suggests changes to income-based loan repayment rules are benefiting high-income, high-debt students.
May 15, 2012 Did I hear you say on one of your previous programs that seniors who have been paying on student loans for 10 years or more can have the debts dismissed? Mine are a consolidation of federal loans and I haven't missed a payment in the past 10 years. Helen, Portland, OR
May 10, 2012 I am 26 years old and recently graduated from grad school. I have about $28,000 of loan debt, from both undergrad and grad school. My deferment is up next month, and without changing or consolidating anything, I will owe more than $500/month. I work for a non-profit and cannot make that high of a payment. I know I have some options for repayment and consolidation. I am trying to find a balance in which I am paying what I can afford each month, but not extending my loans so much that I am paying an absurd amount of interest. Elisa, Bozeman, MT
