We will try to help you find an affordable positive solution to all your financial problems. The United States Department of Education (DOE) offers four income-based repayment plans for resolution of student loan debt with loan forgiveness for government service. Chris Wesner, LLC., a member of five Ohio bar associations and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, has ten years of experience helping clients with Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.
Income-Based Repayment Plans
Professional loan servicers, working with the DOE, are available free of charge to help you apply for an income-based repayment plan. Four income-driven loan forgiveness programs require you to pay 10% to 20% of your “discretionary” income for a period of ten to twenty years. Your monthly payments increase and decrease with your earnings and the size of your family based on an annual certification process. Your remaining student loan balance is forgiven at the end of your repayment period when you complete your income-based repayment plan.
You may be eligible for public service student loan forgiveness if you work for a nonprofit or a government organization. The public service loan forgiveness program discharges your remaining student loan debt balance when you have successfully completed a 120-month repayment program.
