Date:9/12/2017

It’s no secret the financial strain of student loan debt can cause stress in a person’s life. But a new survey conducted by Student Loan Hero has discovered just how impactful this stress can be, with more than half of the respondents reporting physical symptoms of anxiety due to their student loan debt.

This survey set out to discover the psychological effects of student loan debt. Student Loan Hero asked borrowers if their student debt causes them to lose sleep, suffer from physical symptoms or anxiety, feel the need to socially isolate themselves, or experience other issues.

The majority of respondents said “yes” to these questions, highlighting the fact that student loan debt isn’t just putting financial pressure on their lives, but emotionally hampering them as well.
