    I was wondering, I went back to school 8 years ago and graduated with an Associate degree. At 54, I am unable to keep up with my school loans of $18,000.

    If a person is on disability, do they still need to pay that back?

    I am only working about 15 - 20 hours a week right now and have begun filing awhile back. I cannot do a full week.

    What happens to someone that cannot pay this back at my age?

    I wish I knew the answer to that question, but I would think you would need to call who ever holds your loans. Like mine are through AES in PA.

    I wish you the best and hope you get answers to your question.

    But my sister is on disability and I believe her student loans are deferred. Something to check into.

    I am from PA........I would love to know what happens when a person can't pay, I am sure there are a lot, being that the economy is the way it is right now.

    I wish the government made it easier for people to go to school and to be able to have healthcare. I use my husband's insurance and I am being harassed for the portion that the insurance didn't cover.

    If you have proof of a permanent disability you can get your loans deferred or dismissed.
