I am 41 years old. I started repayment on consolidated student loans through Sallie Mae 15 years ago. They have been sold to a different company at least once, I have deferred them several times but have never paid more than minimum amounts. I have mostly worked part time over the last 13 years due to having kids. I lost a full time job about a year and a half ago and am now back to working part time.
Is there any relief assistance available for me besides volunteering though Americorps or joining the National Guard? (the only two viable things I’ve seen in my search on line)
Are there Government Grants available? And how do I research finding them? or are there “Forgiveness” programs, and again, how do I go about finding them? Thanks for this great website! I hope you may have some helpful information for me :)
