I am receiving a check from a land sale from my deceased fathers estate. If i put it in the bank can they take it to pay back my outstanding student loans
Whether government or private student loans, the lender must sue you and get a judgment before they can garnish a bank account. You might consider getting on a loan rehab plan if these are federal loans.
