student loan debt (copy)
ILLUSTRATION BY BRANDON RAYGO

After Bill got married, he decided to consolidate his student loan with his wife's. It was one of the biggest mistakes he says he's ever made.

On this week's final episode of the Cost of Opportunity, Bill — who requested that his real name not be used — talks about the mountain of debt he will face well past retirement thanks to the complex legal realities surrounding a now-defunct federal debt program.
