Practice pointers

Determine whether the loan is a federal loan. Use the National Student Load Data System to determine your client's federal (not private) student loans.

Avoid default. Encourage your clients to take a pro-active approach to student loan debt. Once a debt is in default then forbearance is not an option and a federal loan creditor may add a collection charge that may be as high as 25% of the balance due.
