Are student loans forgiven at age 65?

11 min read

Neither federal student loans or private student loans are forgiven at age 65.

There’s no major forgiveness program that you become eligible for when you reach 65 years of age.

For most federal student loan borrowers, they’re eligible for 3 loan forgiveness programs regardless of age:

– income-driven repayment plan forgiveness (20 to 25 years of payment)
– Public Service Loan Forgiveness (10 years of work for the government or a nonprofit)
– Total and Permanent Disability Forgiveness (100% disabled by Social Security, VA, or doctor)

Private student loans don’t offer those types of loan forgiveness programs.
