What Happens If I Fail in My Student Loan?

More than 1.1 million Americans failed in their federal student loans for the first time last year. When you fail in federal student loans, the consequences are heavy and can affect some areas of your life. You may experience consequences that include:

Wages of cannabis: The Department of Education can decorate up to 15 percent of your disposable wage. Unlike personal collectors, the Department of Education does not require an assessment to decorate your income.
Your balance increases: Your remaining balance becomes immediately due when you fail. Interest and unpaid billing costs can also be added to your balance. The latter is especially true for borrowers with FFEL loans.
Reduce the credit score: The loan servicers will report you to the three credit agencies if your loan stays too long. You are also reported to three credit agencies after a default. This can significantly lower your credit score. Having a low credit score can make it harder to get a job, housing or other credit line.
You lose eligibility for financial aid: You are not eligible for federal finance while your loan is in default condition. Setting your loan defaults can cause problems if you plan to return to school.
You lose the eligibility for a payment plan: One of the major benefits of most federal student loans is that you can take advantage of a revenue-based payment plan. You lose this option after failing to pay your student loan. In addition, you also no longer qualify for suspension or patience of economic difficulties.
Can I Get My Student Loans Without Standard?
Depending on your situation, it is possible to get your federal student loan from failure. The borrower generally has two options available - the Department of Education's loan rehab program or turn your loan into a Direct Consolidation Loan. Both options may have pros and cons depending on your individual situation.

If you choose a loan rehab, you must make nine monthly payments within 20 days from the due date for 10 consecutive months. For Perkins Loans, the terms are nine payments for nine months in a row. You can only use a one-time loan rehab program. Once your loan is taken from failure, you can qualify for a useful payment program. Additionally, records from the defaults are removed from your credit report.

Your second option is to consolidate your bad credit into Direct Consolidation Loans. This will consolidate your loan into a single loan with a fixed interest rate. By consolidating your loan, you may be out of default within a period of weeks instead of months. However, you can pay more during your loan period if the previous interest rate is lower.
