Seniors’ Stories Wanted

There are many seniors struggling to make ends meet because of their student loans.

I would like to be a voice for those people.

I am looking for stories from people over 40 years old who have student loans and can’t afford to pay them.  I chose the age of 40 because many of the loans have 25 year repayment plans and 65 is the traditional retirement age.

I will feature some of the stories on this blog.  I won’t use their real names unless they give me permission to do so.  If you want to see my story, check out my other website at

The more we can get the word out on how bad the current laws are, the better chance we have of getting them changed.

Here are my contact options for folks to send their stories to me.  By mail: Jessica Hopkins, PO Box 2745, Salem OR 97308. On Facebook, send a message to me under the name: Keep Jessica Afloat.  Or you can e-mail me at

I’m looking forward to helping to publicize the plight of seniors with these loans.

If you know anybody who meets the description, encourage them to get in touch.

If you know a news outlet who might be willing to air or print this notice, by all means, share it with them.  Thank you!

A note, I have my blog set up so that I have to approve comments before they appear.  So don’t be concerned if you try to comment and it doesn’t show up right away.  Also, since I work full time and have a busy life, I generally only am able to work on my blog once a week.
