The Standard Repayment Plan for federal student loans is currently the most popular plan offered mainly because it is the plan a borrower is automatically placed in if they do not select one of the other plans available. There are several different types of federal student loans that are eligible for this program, so this program will work for most student loan borrowers. This plan offers a fixed monthly payment of at least $50.00 per month for up to 10 years. This plan can save borrowers money because this plan offers the shortest repayment term so the borrowers pay less interest over that term.Learn More
Graduated Repayment Plans are plans that allow borrowers to start with a lower monthly payment that will consistently increase every two years. This repayment plan is designed so that it does not extend their repayment period. The gradual increase insures that the loan will be paid off in the same amount of time as your original term. On a graduated plan, the loan may end up costing more in terms of interest paid, due to starting off with a lower payment.Learn More
The Income Based Repayment Plan (or IBR as it is mostly referred to) is the most widely available income driven repayment plans for borrowers with Federal Student Loans. This plan takes into account what borrowers adjusted gross income, family size and state of residence. The major difference between this repayment plan and some of the others is that it requires a financial hardship in order to qualify. The Income Based Repayment plan is a qualifying repayment plan and will make you eligible for possible loan forgiveness.Learn More
