Does anyone know the penalties of defaulting on a student loan?

I was wondering if anyone knew what the penalties were of defaulting on a student loan. My loans have changed hands so many times and I’ve tried consolidation and all that seems to do is get me in more hot water. The other day I was sent a letter stating that I was about to default on a loan and that I would be subject to litigation. How much jail/prison time is involved? I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t care anymore. I mean suing someone for not having money is stupid, but our justice system lets it happen all the time. … Read entire article »

Debt consolidation and student loans question?

I’m trying to repay my debt but I am having a very hard time. I have about 40k in debt including interest I’ve accumulated (over estimate, to be safe) most of which is 1 private and 1 federal student loan (probably 35k worth) and the rest are utility bills that are years past due. I’m in my twenties, not a home owner, and currently not a student. Most all of, if not all of, these debts have already gone to collections. I work a job with unsteady hours so I’m never sure how much my pay check will actually be for, this makes it very difficult to budget. Not to mention, I simply don’t make much money. I’ve been actively looking for a higher paying and steadier job but haven’t … Read entire article »

Student Consolidation Loans: Good or Bad idea?

Recently the reality stick has hit me hard: with the current set up i have, i’d owe about 400$ a month in student loans (both federal and private). That sucks pretty much. But this is also because i’m not exactly full time in my career-type job. I’m lucky in that i get to go back to school and happy deferment land, but it gets me thinking that a consolidation would be kinda awesome. They warn that it’ll fix the rate at the average, and if i’m not paying so much against principle i’ll be paying back longer, but if have the one interest rate, and pay back as if they were split (say i’d only owe 65$/mo consolidated, but around 200$/mo for just the federal) Wouldn’t i be applying more … Read entire article »
