Is Student Loan Forgiveness Real?
Yes, student loan forgiveness is real, but it won’t happen overnight. There is no magic wand that will make your entire student loan debt disappear instantly. You can, however, enroll in certain repayment plans that will lower your monthly payments and allow you to forgive any remaining balance after 20 or 25 years (depending on the plan you choose). You may also qualify for various student loan forgiveness programs that can eliminate a portion of your debt in as little as five years.
