Though loans won’t be forgiven, there have been some changes that may be helpful. Here are a few options to consider and prepare for:
- The ‘Save Plan’ is a new repayment plan. It’s an income based repayment plan that will cut monthly payments by considering only 5 percent of disposable income (opposed to the prior 10 percent).
- The Department of Education has announced that they will not report missed payments to credit reporting agencies for 12 months, giving borrows a slight break.
- Student loan payments will officially begin in October. Jini suggests starting to save and prepare budgets this month (July), as interest will begin to accrue in September.
Parents, keep in mind that Parent Plus Loans are ineligible for modified repayment plans. Be sure to plan in advance and avoid student loan scams!
