I'm a college student and in September I will be starting my third year. I have student loans from the government that I rely on to pay my yearly
fees. With all of the hype going on about the worldwide economic struggles and the United States possibly not sending out social security checks, I
thought it would be appropriate to ask if my student loans would still be paid amid a crisis.
So today I called studentloans.gov and they could not answer my questions. I tried asking if the money they offered me is already budgeted for, I
asked if my tuition would still be paid for even if a crisis strikes, and I asked a few similar questions..And all she said was sir I do not know.
I'm aware that a lot of the politicians are playing their best poker faces right now and spreading fear to Americans. So I just wanted to throw this
question out there..what would happen to student loans and those young people like me that rely on the government for schooling if things don't go so
swell? Will they still get paid or will they withhold things like that too?
This is something that was on my mind today and I thought I would share it. If this isn't the right topic to put this in could a Mod please move this
it's the wrong place? I'm sorry I'm new to ats
