%REPLIES%. Response . Federal student loans do not need a cosigner. Your Uncle Sam is guaranteeing them.. Response . If you are not applying for a federal student loan, but trying to get an alternative education loan, some lenders, such as Bank One, will review the financial information of a retired co-signer, provided that you file form 1099 (certain documents relating to taxes) that have been received during the previous two years.
