Tailor your FFELP student loan payments to your income.
Need to lower your monthly federal Stafford, PLUS, or consolidation loan payment?
Explore income-sensitive repayment as an option. Your payment must cover at least monthly accruing interest. You determine the percentage of your monthly payment: between 4% and 25% of your monthly gross income.
- You have to apply annually for an income-sensitive repayment plan.
- You can prepay at any time without penalty.
Because the loan is repaid more slowly, your total interest costs will be higher over the life of your loan.
