Outstanding student loan debt grows for 60-plus group

The 60-plus segment of the U.S. population is the fastest growing segment of the population with outstanding student loan debt, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.

In fact, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said that older Americans are the fastest growing part of the overall student loan market. The trend is not just because they failed to pay off their own carrying student loans; it is also because a growing number of parents and grandparents are financing their children’s and grandchildren’s college education.
