Tell Congress to make student loans fairer!
News about student debt is often pretty bleak, but here’s something hopeful: a bipartisan group in Congress has introduced legislation that would allow borrowers to sever joint student loans.
Here’s why that matters: in some cases, a two people file a joint student loan, only for one of them to later become abusive or unresponsive. This leaves the other person trapped in the joint loan, without any way out until it’s repaid.
This bill, known as the Joint Consolidation Loan Separation Act, would solve that problem by allowing individuals to sever the joint loan. This is a common-sense reform that’s already drawn bipartisan support—let’s push our reps to sign on too.
Tell your reps: support the Joint Consolidation Loan Separation Act!
People shouldn’t be trapped in joint student loans.
