Student Debt Spiral

Did you know that student loan debt in America is increasing at a rate of $2,667 per second?! New data reveals that student loan balances soared to more than $1.3 trillion as of Dec. 31, 2016, making up 10% of our national debt crunch! Even more alarming, as of the fourth quarter of 2016, more than 11% of student debt was more than 90 days delinquent or in default, surpassing even credit card debt.
