Student Loan Debt

Student loans in Greater Vancouver and the failure to repay them have increased dramatically in recent years. As tuition continues to rise and income for entry-level jobs do not, more and more individuals find themselves with student loan debt they cannot repay.

The majority of student loan recipients are young, and the debt they are taking on is, quite often, their first endeavor in the world of credit. Students might not have the education or life experience to actually comprehend how credit works, and typically don’t make a plan for repayment.

Since it takes the average student many years to repay student loan debt in British Columbia and since it can be difficult to obtain long-term, sustainable employment in their chosen career, it is not surprising that after years of struggle many discover that they are not able to keep up with their student loan repayment obligation and find the outstanding balance prohibitive, limiting their lives accordingly.

Missed payments are not forgotten and can come with serious repercussions. If you are struggling to make your monthly payments, you should explore the repayment options available to you through your student loan solution provider, Westgeest & Associates.
