Student Debt: It's Not Just for Young Adults

Recent college graduates aren't the only ones carrying student loan debt. A significant number of older Americans have student debt, too. In fact, student loan debt is the second-highest consumer debt category after mortgage debt. In total, outstanding student loan debt in the United States now stands at approximately $1.5 trillion, with the age 30 to 39 group carrying the highest load.
