Grant Extensions and Reduce Payments on Student Loans

Citibank does not allow extensions on student loans, nor do they offer payment plans that work with the financial budgets of their customers. A fixed payment is required, which may not be affordable for everyone. Getting out of debt is important, but it shouldn't drive people destitute while they try to establish a career.

In one month after finishing my graduate school requirements (before even receiving my diploma), my Citibank loan is no longer deferred, and I must start payments.

I don't want to be in debt forever... I want to be paying off my loans ASAP; however, my payment is $370 per month, until all $40,000 of it is paid off. In addition to my Citibank student loans I have Sallie Mae, and federal loans to pay.

Without a well paying full-time job, a fixed payment of $370 is exhorbitantly high. I know I'm not the only one being forced to pay a ridiculously high amount per month.

Let's work to change this system and require student loan companies to create manageable payment plans.
