Dear Juan,

You can use the online public benefits finder to check what you might be eligible for in the way of benefits.

But unless these loans are government backed or government subsidized loans there are few options. I sadly suspect they are private student loans, online schools are notorious for this.

Post an update below with more information about the type of loans you have, government or private.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.

Sincerly,
Steve

You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
