Student Debt Resources

America is suffering from a student debt crisis.

The cost of college increased tenfold since the 1970s. Meanwhile, the top 1% graduate debt-free and politicians continue to choose corporate tax breaks over funding for higher education.

Having college debt could mean having to put off saving for your own child's college because you're still paying for your own college debt. Or maybe you are having trouble paying your monthly bills because of a high monthly student loan payment.
