I have a $100,000 is federal loans that have been consolidated with Direct loans and are now with Sallie Mae and $15,000 in private loans.

My private loans i can handle making $124 a month payments.

My federal is what is killing me. I bring home $1200 every 2 weeks after taxes. I’m the IBR plan, by the time i’m done paying bills I have just enough let over to pay the IBR plan I’m on. My payment doesnt even cover the interest ever month and the loan keeps going up. What happens after the 25 years is up? What can I do to help my situation?
