Repaying Your Loans
Planning for the repayment of your student loans takes some thought and an evaluation of your situation and options. Understanding your options, the hazards of default, and how to resolve federal student loan disputes are critical to your future financial health.Loans begin to go into repayment when a borrower:
- Graduates from school
- Takes a Leave of Absence
- Withdraws from school
- Transfers to another school
- Drops below half-time enrollment
NEWS AND UPDATES:
The Obama administration announced important updates to make it easier for borrowers to manage their student loan debt.
Under the new Pay As You Earn (PAYE) plan, beginning in January 2013, current students can cap their loan payment at 10 percent of their incomes with forgiveness after 20 years rather than 25 years of responsible payments.
