Federal Loan For Debt Consolidation

By: Johnporter
Under the direct Federal consolidation loan program the U.S. department of education repays your original Federal education loan and makes you eligible for a new loan equal to the amount of loan consolidated.

You need to have an existing Direct or Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) to qualify for loan consolidation program of this kind. When a student applies for a consolidation loan, the school can decide his or her remaining loan eligibility by subtracting the payments made from the original principal loan amount.

Under the Income Contingent Repayment Plan borrowers are allowed to consolidate their defaulted loans through the Direct Consolidation loan program. If you are a loan holder currently and you agree to repay your loans in time under the repayment scheme of direct consolidation plan then you can knock off your loan burden and be back to the credit performance track easily.

The loan application is verified for eligibility for repayment through an Electronic Verification Certification (EVC) service. This certificate of verification is send to each loan holder and should be returned within 10 business days.

If you have a defaulted loan and you are using the Income Contingent Repayment (ICR) then you must produce an "ICR Consent to Disclosure of Tax Information" form. This form is forwarded to IRS for approval.

A summary of the loan statement is sent to the borrowers and payments are mailed to them once the loans are verified. The loan holder receives a payment from the consolidation department through electronic fund transfer or other means. The loan holder can now discharge his debts fully. Any Underpayment and Overpayment issues are resolved by expert guidance and procedures.

Borrowers' Direct Consolidation Loan accounts are set up after the loans are paid off. You can now receive information on your loan status and repayment schedule. The first repayment date is within 60 days of disbursement of this direct consolidation loan.

You can also add your outstanding loan to this loan within 180 days after the first disbursement.
