For Parents / retired with student loans
June 22, 2020, 10:45:10 pm
I am 68 years old, retired.  Living overseas with no car, no car insurance, etc.  Keeping expenses  low. I have $170K in consolidated Parent Plus loans.  I make my regular student loan payments. When I return to the US next year (health issues) I will be 69, my only debt will be the student loans, with $830 monthly ICR based payment.  I do not own a home, car, jewelry, etc.  Nothing of monetary value. Based on my research, my only options appear to be continuing with $830/month payments, or default and let the government take the 15% of social security, $270.  Are there other viable alternatives?
