Practical Solutions For Student Loan Debt Problems

The cost of a college degree has increased by almost 1200% since the late 1970’s. Unfortunately, income for the average American family has grown by less than one third of that amount. That has led to a tremendous growth in student loan debt. Today, the average college student has student loan debt in excess of $30,000- the average graduate student has student loan debt of over $85,000. There is more student debt in the US than credit card debt.

You have been bombarded with advertisements from the government and companies that say there are easy solutions to student loan debt. While it is true that federal loans have programs that are supposed to assist borrowers with their student loan debt, those loans are not administered by the government but by servicers or debt collectors whose income may not be maximized by giving you the best deal.
