What if student loans can be inherited?

To next of kin? Wouldn’t that suck? Humor and serious answers welcome. Sorry for giving the government ideas.

The debt doesn’t go away just because you die. Your estate will have to pay your debts.

^Following up on that, debt is inherited in the sense that it is deducted from any money that you plan to have people inherit.

See above. This is the fallacy of “debt forgiveness”. It doesn’t just go away. Somebody is going to pay it. Whether it is your heirs, or a taxpayer. Somebody is going to have to pay it.
