Deferrred Student Loans
I am a military member and for years I was told deferring my and my children's student loans was a good thing. I know have close to 200K in student loans. I am able to make payments but is there any relief out their for all the built up interest. My credit score is horrible as for 2 years I was the only income person in my household. Any advice is welcomed.
