There are numerous options for repaying Federal Student Loans, including the standard option, income based, and graduated. One way to estimate the maximum monthly payment you might have is to look at the loan amount in $10,000 increments, and assume an unsubsidized interest rate of 6.21% which was in effect for loans borrowed beginning with the summer 2015:
|Loan Amount||Interest Rate||Repayment Plan||Repayment Period||Monthly Payment||Total Interest Paid||Total Amount Paid|
For other options go to: www.studentloans.gov and choose “Use the Repayment Estimator”
At the same website you can access information on loan consolidation and forgiveness and Entrance and Exit Loan Counseling (required for all federal student loan borrowers)
