Hi. Sorry to hear. Time frame depends on the loan.
However, there are a number of situations under which you can have your federal student loan balance forgiven.
A couple examples of situations in which your federal student loans may be forgiven include:
If you have a Federal Perkins Loan, you can apply to the school that made the loan or contact the loan servicer the school has designated.
In addition to above, certain types of cancellations are available to military personnel, teachers, nurses, child care providers, or borrowers affected by the closure of a school. The rules are different, depending on the type of loan you have.
