If you are a student loan borrower, who was previously in repayment, you can prepare for repayment to start by doing the following
- Update your contact info with your loan servicer and at StudentAid.gov.
- Review your auto-debit enrollment or sign up for auto-debit for the first time. If you use auto-debit, you could get a 0.25% interest rate deduction on their loans.
- Consider applying for an income-driven repayment (IDR) plan. An IDR plan can make your monthly payment more affordable. Plus, if all your loans are Direct Loans, you can now self-report your income when applying for or recertifying an IDR plan.
- Review the requirements for loan forgiveness programs, including the recent big changes to Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF). While many changes will be automatic, some borrowers will need to take steps. Learn more about these PSLF changes at StudentAid.gov/pslfwaiver.
