Controlling the Student Loan Repayment

Student loan debts have become a kind of plague. These loans can be huge and ultimately stressful. Many young people in America are afraid to even make monthly payments for their student loans. It seems impossible to deal with the extraordinary balance that does not seem to be going anywhere.

When you are young you are easily influenced. Millennium today is no exception. Obtaining student loan loans is seen as an important burden required to reach their careers. Many find themselves employed after college. However, according to CareerBuilder.com about half of college graduates in 2014 are employed in jobs that do not require a bachelor's degree.

To make matters worse, student lenders start unemployed their "clients" immediately after graduation. If you are one of the clients you may know now, there is nothing easier in this world than debt. Chances are you have the money to repay your student loan debt very quickly.

Before leaving high school, these impressionable young people believe that college education will lead to a guaranteed career. Apparently, it's not that simple. The Washington Post reported in 2013, according to data from Jaison Abel and Richard Dietz of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, that only 27% of college graduates have jobs related to their majors. If this comes as a rude awakening for you, I'm sorry. There is no one simple way to make your dream job a reality and your student loan debt is gone. However, it takes action, commitment and it is possible.

Student loans. If reading those two words makes you angry, do not worry. It should. Paying student loans may seem impossible but there are ways you can help yourself. The first thing you need to do is understand what kind of loan you have. Some loans qualify for certain benefits that can help your situation.

See National Student Loan System (NSLD). This website is the place of the US Department of Education database for student assistance. Only federal student loans are eligible for this assistance. In my experience, I speak with more individuals with federal loans than those who have personal loans.

A good idea for those who are unemployed or "between jobs" is delay or patience. The delay or ability allows you to temporarily stop paying your federal student loan or temporarily deduct the amount you pay. This can help if you are in danger of defaulting on your loan. The default occurs when you have not made your monthly payment for a long period of time. In case of default, lenders take legal action to get their money back.

If you are eligible to postpone, the federal government may pay interest on your loan during the period of postponement. The opposite goes for patience. In the patience you may be able to lower your payments or stop paying entirely for up to 12 months.

These choices can give you space to breathe and pursue a career that you have learned for so long to achieve.

There are other options available to help your monthly payments decrease to a manageable level. There is an income-based payment plan for people with direct loans or Federal Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) loans. In an income-based payment program, your monthly payments can be reduced to 10% of your monthly income. In many cases, loans are forgiven after 25 years in these programs.

Depending on your situation, there may be a payment plan out there that works best for you. Visit the Federal Student Aid website and browse their list of payment plans.

The consolidation of student loans is a viable option for people with more than one student loan. If your student loan has a variable interest rate and minimum monthly payment you should look into Direct Consolidation Loans. Just like traditional consolidation, direct consolidation loans incorporate some federal student loans into one loan with one payment and an interest rate. These loans can stretch the amount of time you have to repay the loan, thus lowering your monthly payments. You will also earn fixed interest according to your interests instead of dealing with variable rates.

Consolidation does have a down side. You may be more comfortable with monthly payments but, you will pay more in the long run because of the interest rate. If your personal loan benefits you
