Student Loan Issues for Older Borrowers

When: Wednesday, October 21, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

Student loans are not just a problem for millennials—people 50 and older are on the hook for about 20 percent of the nation's student loans, and since 2004, student loan debt for those 60 and older has grown faster than any other age group. Individuals took on student loan debt not only for their own education, but for the education of their children and grandchildren. This presentation will review:

  • Impact of student loan on older borrowers
  • Federal student loan issues
  • Options for Parent PLUS borrowers
  • CARES Act Relief
  • Private student loan issues and options 


  • Persis Yu, Director, Student Loan Borrower Assistance Project, National Consumer Law Center
  • Bonnie Latreille, Director of Research and Advocacy, Student Borrower Protection Center
  • Joe Valenti, Senior Strategic Policy Advisor, AARP Public Policy Institute

 Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.
