My husband left when our kids were six and three. While my kids were still young, I decided to go back to school in the hopes of making a better life for my family. Despite years of looking for a better job, I never found one. I’m now nearly 60, and still working as a secretary. I’ve been making full payments on one loan for years, and sending what I could afford on the other one. I can't postpone regular payments on the second loan any longer. They are more than I can possibly afford. I've already paid thousands, with no end in sight. Many think that student loans are only a young persons' issue. But I've read of people in their 70's having their Social Security garnished. The laws need to be changed. People my age and older are not going to suddenly find better jobs. And we don't have decades in the workforce to pay off these nightmare debts.
. Student loan lenders can garnish wages without a court order. They can seize tax refunds and bank accounts. I need help! My friends have helped me out and I've made a couple of payments. But I can't expect my friends to keep helping.
My current goal is to raise enough to pay off the smaller loan, which will free up money to put toward the larger one.
My hope is that this will be shared widely, and that many people will contribute and help me get out from this nightmare situation. No amount is too small. Check out my website at keepjessicaafloat.com for more information. Thanks so much for reading this. Please contribute if you can. But whether or not you can help financially, please share my information. My only hope is to get this out to many people.. .
