If your federal student loan debt is high relative to your income and family size, you may qualify for Income Based Repayment (IBR). At present, the IBR plan caps monthly federal student loan payments at 15% of the borrower's discretionary income and grants forgiveness for any remaining loan debt once the borrower makes qualifying payments for 25 years. Modifications made by Congress shortly after the initial implementation of the IBR plan are projected to reduce the cap from 15% to 10% of a borrower's discretionary income and reduce the years of qualifying payments from 25 to 20 for borrowers who take out their first federal student loan after 2014. The "Pay As You Earn" plan is expected to expedite these modifications making them available to new borrowers as early as 2012. For more information on IBR visit the Federal Student Aid Web site.

With the start of the fiscal year 2014, additional sequester funding reductions are taking place under the Budget Control Act of 2011.

The new loan fees are 1.072 percent for Direct Subsidized Loans and Direct Unsubsidized Loans and 4.288 percent for Direct Parent PLUS and GRAD PLUS loans. These new loan fees will only apply to loans for which the first disbursement is made on or after December 1, 2013.
