Advantage CCS Releases a Slide Show on Tips and Resources for Student Loans
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania August 31, 2013 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Advantage Credit Counseling Services, a national service provider of debt counseling, published a slide show specifically for people struggling to deal with student loan debt. Student debt is quickly becoming a national crisis. Of the 20 million Americans who attend college every year, nearly 60% borrow money annually to help cover costs. Between the approximately 37 million borrowers with outstanding student loans, the total US student loan debt is estimated to be between $902 billion and $1 trillion, overtaking total US credit card debt ($853.6 billion as of June 2013). We also know that 14% of borrowers (5.4 million people) have at least one payment past due, and the total amount of student loan debt past due comes to $85 billion.
