Pay Your Educational Loans on a Timely Basis and Thereby Secure Yourself
Posted by Shyamoli Shah on September 24th, 2016
Have you taken educational loan during your post graduation? Have you become a defaulter now since you have become a bankrupt? You need not panic as there are ways out. Since education has become extremely costly, it often becomes unaffordable for many students or parents. It is then that many students opt for student loans. Sometimes due to unavoidable circumstances many students fail to pay the loan back to their money lenders or to the financial institutions, from where they once took the student loans. As a result of which they become a defaulter of such loans. Defaulting student loans are a worse situation, which many students fall into.
When does a person become a defaulter?
If a student fails to pay his or her educational loan within 9 successive months or 270 days he or she comes to a default status. However on request the person can defer his payment period. Even though after that he cannot repay the loan, he falls under final defaulter of student loans. The delinquency period is 270 days. However, there are several payment options of defaulted student loans.
If a student becomes a defaulter it negates his credit score. It is like a blemish on his career. The outcome might be ferocious as he cannot own a property, house or a car after that.
Consequences of defaulting student loans
No sooner does a person become a defaulter of student loans than his telephone or mobile starts ringing. The debt collectors start chasing the persons concerned and make their life hell. They keep ringing the defaulter even at the middle of the night. They might also use abusive language. In such a case the defaulter should complain to the US Department of Education. They pose threat upon the defaulter, as a result of which, he is forced to pay off the money. If the defaulter holds any service, the outcome is much more terrible.
Defaulting student loans result in the loss of a job and the defaulter can never own a property or a car in the future. He is barred from taking any further loans even if he is in want.
The defaulter of student loans can prevent himself by opting loan rehabilitation process or programs. Under the US dept. of education there are several programs which help an individual to repay student loans. They might request the debt collectors to reduce the installment of each month or defer their payment date.
