Student Loans Crushing College Grads

Today’s college grads are facing the “real world” with an extra scoop of debt.

Two-thirds of students graduating from college or graduate school have student loans – about $25,000 on average. That’s a 25% increase over the past 10 years. In fact, today’s twentysomething holds an average debt of $45,000, including everything from student loans to mortgages and credit cards.

Unfortunately, unemployment for those aged 18-29 is 12.4%, well above the national rate of 8.2%.

If you’re among this group and struggling with paying the bills, consider the part-time Primerica opportunity. It’s a great way to earn extra income while helping families reach their financial goals.
