A few weeks ago I blogged about the horrors of federal student loan default and how it can make your life pretty miserable. Luckily, there are many ways of avoiding default, as I briefly discuss in my article.
The National Consumer Law Center (based right here in Boston, MA) has recently released a comprehensive report about default: who is defaulting, why they are defaulting, and what can be done to help people who might be at risk of defaulting. It is a thorough and well-researched report and worth a read. Check it out here.
