WILMINGTON, Del., April 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Navient released additional insights from its report on the financial health of young Americans, Money Under 35. The special report takes a deeper look at whether student debt is related to delays in buying a home, getting married, and having children. The special report shows the mortgage, marriage, and child rates for two groups of millennials—25-30 years old and 31-35 year olds—by educational attainment and for student loan borrowers and non-borrowers.
Navient's Money Under 35 study, conducted in coordination with global research company Ipsos, is based on a survey of more than 3,000 adults aged 22 to 35.
"The survey results show that young college graduates, including those who are still paying off student loans, are more likely to buy a home than their same-age peers who did not pursue higher education," said Jack Remondi, president and CEO, Navient. "At the same time, the findings confirm that young people who borrow to attempt college but do not complete a degree are more likely to struggle financially. This is why we advocate for programs that help students and families make more informed decisions about how to pay for college—not just the first semester or year but the full cost of the degree."
