Repayment of Federal Loans

Repayment of Federal loans is a very serious obligation. There are a number of repayment options available to help borrowers to meet their obligations. Remember, you are required to make your student loan payments even if you:

  • do not complete your education
  • are not employed upon completion of your studies
  • do not find employment in your field of study
  • feel that the education you received did not meet your expectations
  • do not receive a bill

You must make your loan repayments on time or it may have serious consequences. It may:

  • damage your credit rating, which could impact your ability to borrow
  • refer your account to a collection agency
  • incur collection costs
  • cause garnishment of your wages
  • cause withholding of your state or Federal treasury payments (including federal tax refunds, Social Security benefits, etc.)
  • cause a civil lawsuit, including court costs and legal expenses
  • cause loss of deferment and forbearance entitlements and flexible repayment options
  • cause loss of eligibility for further financial aid
  • suspend your professional license

Repayment options
There are a number of repayment options available. You should discuss them with your lender to determine which will be the best for you:

  • Standard Repayment
  • Graduated Repayment
  • Extended Repayment
  • Income-Based Repayment
  • Pay As You Earn Repayment
  • Income-Contingent Repayment
  • Income-Sensitive Repayment
     

For full details see the Department of Education repayment webpages. You will always pay the least amount of interest under the Standard Repayment Plan.
