Majority of Bank Risk Managers Expect Student-Loan Delinquencies to Continue to Rise

“A majority of bank risk managers expect student-loan delinquencies to continue to rise.”

Percent of student loans 90 days or more delinquent: 5 years ago: 8.8% Now: 11.4%

Number of people with two or more open student loans on their credit report: 7 years ago: 12 million Now: 26 million

“If the defaults continue to increase, ‘the taxpayer is going to be on the hook for losses.’”

(“The federal government has taken a more active role in student lending and now makes about 93% of all loans.”)

WHATEVER IS GOING TO HAPPEN? HOWEVER MIGHT THIS TURN OUT? (I guess we’ll just have to Wait and Seeeeeeeeeeee.)
