I have a student loan from 1993 which I took out before I was 40 years old, I am now 58 years old. have had no contact or correspondence fro the students loan company in 1996.
I have recently received a letter from a dept recovery company demanding payment for the loan. There are no county court judgements on the the loan. I thought the loan became void when I reached 50 years old am I mistaken.
