Good evening. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. What will happen is that they will eventually sue you. They will get a judgment and go after any assets which you may have to settle this and at the same time, your credit score will be damaged. When it comes to student loans (federal) they could go after your social security to garnish that and any other income you may have. If you have nothing and do not care about your credit, there is nothing else they can really do. This is not something that would result in any jail time, so aside from trying to get a small piece of your SS and any income which you may have, they are limited.
