How do you know what you need to Earn in order to Pay Back Your Student Loan Debt?


A 24-year old young man called me who has $50K of student loan debt and a $750 monthly payment that he can't afford. Although I am not a debt counselor, only pro actively help families and students navigate through and understand the financial aid process, I helped him to understand the potential ramifications if he chose to default on his loans.

I've attached a link below that shows a student how much they have to earn in order to pay back a designated amount of a student loan. It also outlines if you specify what you earn how much student loan debt you can support. It's an excellent tool that I feel every family should review prior to deciding how much debt their child or their family should take on.
