Yes, but it varies from state to state. Do a google search and find the SOL on debt for your state.

I

What you want to search for is Statute of Limitations on Collections, which shows how much time a debt collection may be pursued after the debt goes into default.  In my state, it is 6 years so if the last payment I made were today, the last date the collection attempts could be made would be July 19, 2021.  Of course, andy opayments made in between times restarts the collections clock.
