Title: 65, over $165,000 in loans: can I get some of it forgiven
Post by: outlier53@gmail.com on June 25, 2018, 04:45:34 PM
I am 65 yrs old, self-employed (owe federal taxes for 3 yrs), am supporting my adult/autistic son and myself. I am a social worker and have worked 10 months for the Navy, some non-profit work and always served people who are disabled--accepting Medicaid and Medicare for payment for my services. Is there any way to get any of my loans forgiven (they are all with Fed Loan Servicing)? I am currently in forbearance but am trying to do what I can to pay back.

Here are all the programs to get student loan forgiveness: https://thecollegeinvestor.com/21541/different-ways-to-get-student-loan-forgiveness/

It sounds like the best approach may be to get on an income-driven repayment program so you can start making affordable payments. Any balance at the end of the term will be forgiven.
