What happens to my private student loans if I die or become disabled?

Unlike federal student loans, there are no legal requirements to cancel private student loans for borrowers who die or become disabled.

 In certain cases, private lenders have special provisions to discharge loans. Check the terms and conditions of your loan, or contact your servicer for more details.
