Was My Sallie Mae Student Loan Eliminated in My Bankruptcy?


Dear Steve,

Hope you can give me the answer that I want. : ) I filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and the final discharge date was February 1, 2012. Included in the creditors’ payment was Claimant: Sallie Mae and the payment they received $2,566.88. Does this mean that my student loan was included in the bankruptcy?

Dear Evelyn,

While Sallie Mae may have been listed as a creditor in your bankruptcy, your attorney would have most likely have had to file an adversary proceeding to attempt to get a discharge of the debt. That is unless the debt was a private student loan and your school or disbursement was non-conforming, as I describe in this article.

If you feel all or part of your loan was eligible for a discharge, you should contact your bankruptcy attorney to discuss a strategy for going back and dealing with this debt.
