Credits cards and loans....

So I'm out of school now with 20K debt and minimum payment of ~$200 each month for my loan repayment and I have no job. I live at my parents right now, and they pay for shelter and food. I'm looking for a job and am scared once the grace period on my loans are over, I won't be able to pay ~$200 a month and all my credit cards will be closed...Help?! Thanks!

Re: Credits cards and loans....

Is your 20k in debt on credit cards?  I'm confused why you are thinking your loan status will affect your credit cards...

AMEX True Earnings (11.5k) || Discover IT (9k) || Chase Sapphire Preferred (6k) || Chase Freedom (5k) || Citi ThankYou Preferred (4.9k) || GE CareCredit (4.9k) || Sallie Mae (4k) || Citi Diamond Preferred (3.4k) || Best Buy (2k) || AMEX Blue Cash Everyday (2k) || Target REDcard (1k)

Re: Credits cards and loans....

Sounds like you will need to get a job ASAP - even if it isn't something you want to do long term.  So that may mean being a pizza delivery driver, working at a fast food restaurant, etc., while in your off time hitting the pavement putting in resumes face to face until you find a job that fits you.

They won't close your cards unless you quit using them.  Good job on no cc debt - keep it that way.  Take it from me that student loans can be a real pain.

I think you should get a easy stress free job.  Work at a gamestop, subway, pizza maker, etc...

Like others have said, you need a source of income.  Even a part time job will help.

You can easilly maky over $500 monthly by working part time 2 days per week at a very easy job that pays minimum wage.

 

You are worrying about something that is not really a problem.

That's kinda what I meant haha. I think I saw a post where someone asked what if they fall behind on their student loans and if that happens, CCC will see it and close or take action on that person's accounts/cards
