Correspondingly, can u go to jail for unpaid student loans?
Can You Go to Jail for Not Paying Student Loan Debt? You can’t be arrested or sentenced to time behind bars for not paying student loan debt because student loans are considered “civil” debts. This type of debt includes credit card debt and medical bills, and can’t result in an arrest or jail sentence.
Then, do Stafford loans still exist?
Stafford Loans are available for undergraduate and graduate students and come from Direct Stafford Loans made by the U.S. Department of Education. You will repay a Federal Direct Stafford Loan to the U.S. Department of Education.
Do student loans go away after 7 years?
Student loans don’t go away after 7 years. There is no program for loan forgiveness or loan cancellation after 7 years. However, if it’s been more than 7.5 years since you made a payment on your student loan debt and you default, the debt and the missed payments can be removed from your credit report.

A federal Stafford loan is one type of federal aid you’re screened for when you submit a FAFSA. Subsidized Stafford loans are available to students who have financial need, and the interest on these loans is subsidized by the government while the student it in school.
The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Authority (PHEAA), which operates as FedLoan Servicing for its Department of Education servicing operation, had announced earlier this year that it would be withdrawing from the government’s federal student loan servicing system when its contract ends in December.
Stafford loans, now called direct loans, provide low-cost, federally guaranteed financing for students attending college at least half-time.
Your student loan account number is a unique 10-digit number that is given to you by your student loan provider and is used for identifying your federal student loan. Students can use their student loan account number to look up their payments and see how much of their balance is left.
If you’re wondering how to contact FedLoan Servicing, you have several options. The servicer offers a Help Center through its website, online contact forms for email correspondence and a fax number: 717-720-1628.
