Should I Cash Out Retirement to Pay Parent PLUS Loans Off?

By on March 24, 2016


Dear Steve,

Single 60 year old woman with parent loans of $60000- 8.5%- since getting divorced have been unable to pay – loans in deferment

Does it make sense to take money out of my retirement funds ($80000) to pay off the loans at this point? I am unable to save for retirement now but I don’t see any other way to pay these loans.



Dear Cindy,

It does not make sense. See The Best Way to Lower Parent PLUS Loan Payments and leave your retirement for retirement.
