FYI....There is a company that helped removed my defaulted student loan garnishment. Contact them at .

Educational loans are particularly sensitive when it comes to wage garnishment. Even states that do not allow wage garnishment exempt student loans so to answer your question - yes. Your student loan lender can garnish your wages until the full student loan is paid in full. If you are having trouble paying them off and need to lower payments or some other form of debt relief, there is an ombudsman service from the Federal Student Loan that you can use:
Yes, they definitely can!

If your defaulted loans are federal, like Stafford, PLUS, or Perkins, then you can get help from Default Management Services, Inc. Use Google to look up the phone #. Ask for Doug

What happens to a person who does not repay student loans?

Federal student loans have no statute of limitation, meaning they can collect forever. The can garnish your wages without taking you to court, take your tax refund, and sue you in court for property and bank accounts. Student loans are also almost impossible to discharge in bankruptcy.
