    I am being garnished for my student loan. My loans are at least 20 years old. Can I get my student loans forgiven?

    I don't believe we have enough information to say - generally it depends on the type of loan, why (the reason) you believe it should be forgiven among other information.

    You can do a google search & see what information you can find.

    Unfortunately this is a topic of confusion. Some say no, a few say yes. YMMV
    Some say they write their elected US Senators and Congress Person for help.
    Some say they get it removed via bankruptcy.
    Most say its killing them.
    Good luck.

    Government loans are virtually impossible to get discharged in bankruptcy.

    Over 20 years, you have not apparently made a good faith effort to pay them off. Further, your income and assets currently are factors. Usually only those on SSI or over 65 and broke get them forgiven. Apparently you hate the power of interest compounding.
