Student Debt Clinics

Have you paid for student debt for 10 years or longer? Is student debt stressing you or someone who you, out? YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

More than 43 million US workers owe $1.4 trillion dollars in student loans, with ~93% of it owed to the US Department of Education. Workers are going into more debt to finance their education,
and more workers are defaulting on those loans because wages aren’t rising to keep up with the costs. THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN!

THERE’S GOOD NEWS! AFT, OUR NAT’L UNION, HAS DEVELOPED STUDENT DEB T CLINICS THAT WILL:

• Educate you on the national student debt crisis
• Show you how to lower your payments, sometimes to $0,
through enrolling in income-driven repayment programs
• Teach you how to meet the requirements for Public Service Loan Forgiveness, which will get your debt forgiven, tax free, after ten years worth of payments
• Inspire you to join with your union as we
• ORGANIZE and MOBILIZE for more just system of paying for college.
