The pressure of student loan debt isn’t limited to new grads. Americans fifty and older make up roughly twenty percent of those paying down student loans. The number of people sixty and older with student loan debt has grown faster than any other age group. Many who owe student loan debt acquired it as a consignor or by taking out loans to pay for their children and grandchildren’s education. The CARES Act has given breathing room to many struggling to pay for baseline living expenses such as rent, mortgage, food, and utilities. Keeping spirits high is the Biden administration’s indication that student loan forgiveness may be closer than most think.
