SECTION 6: BORROWER REQUESTS, UNDERSTANDINGS, AUTHORIZATION, AND CERTIFICATION
If I am requesting an income-driven repayment plan or seeking to change income-driven repayment plans, I request:
That my loan holder place me on the plan I selected in Section 2 to repay my eligible Direct Loan or FFEL Program loans held
by the holder to which I submit this form.
If I do not qualify for the plan or plans I requested, or did not make a selection in Item 2, that my loan holder place me on the
plan with the lowest monthly payment amount.
If I selected more than one plan, that my loan holder place me on the plan with the lowest monthly payment amount from
the plans that I requested.
If more than one of the plans that I selected provides the same initial payment amount, or if my loan holder is determining
which of the income-driven plans I qualify for, that my loan holder use the following order in choosing my plan: REPAYE (if
my repayment period is 20 years), PAYE, REPAYE (if my repayment period is 25 years), IBR, and then ICR.
If I am not currently on an income-driven repayment plan, but I did not complete Item 1 or I incorrectly indicated in Item 1 that I
was already in an income-driven repayment plan, I request that my loan holder treat my request as if I had indicated in Item 1 that I
wanted to enter an income-driven repayment plan.
If I am currently repaying my Direct Loans under the IBR plan and I am requesting a change to a different income-driven plan, I
request a one-month reduced-payment forbearance in the amount of my current monthly IBR payment or $5, whichever is greater
(unless I request another amount below or I decline the forbearance), to help me move from IBR to the new income-driven plan I
requested.
I request a one-month reduced-payment forbearance in the amount of:
(must be at least $5).
I understand that:
If I do not provide my loan holder with this completed form and any other required documentation, I will not be placed on
the plan that I requested or my request for recertification or recalculation will not be processed.
I may choose a different repayment plan for any loans that are not eligible for income-driven repayment.
If I requested a reduced-payment forbearance of less than $5 above, my loan holder will grant my forbearance request in the
amount of $5.
If I am requesting a change from the IBR Plan to a different income-driven repayment plan, I may decline the one-month
reduced payment forbearance described above by contacting my loan holder. If I decline the forbearance, I will be placed on
the Standard Repayment Plan and must make one monthly payment under that plan before I can be placed on a different
repayment plan.
If I am requesting the ICR plan, my initial payment amount will be the amount of interest that accrues each month on my
loan until my loan holder receives the income documentation needed to calculate my payment amount. If I cannot afford the
initial payment amount, I may request a forbearance by contacting my loan holder.
If I am married and I request the ICR plan, my spouse and I have the option of repaying our Direct Loans jointly under this
plan. My loan servicer can provide me with information about this option.
If I have FFEL Program loans, my spouse may be required to give my loan holder access to his or her loan information in the
National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). If this applies to me, my loan holder will contact me with instructions.
My loan holder may grant me a forbearance while processing my application or to cover any period of delinquency that
exists when I submit my application.
I authorize the loan holder to which I submit this request (and its agents or contractors) to contact me regarding my request or my
loans, including the repayment of my loans, at any number that I provide on this form or any future number that I provide for my
cellular telephone or other wireless device using automated dialing equipment or artificial or prerecorded voice or text messages.
I certify that all of the information I have provided on this form and in any accompanying documentation is true, complete, and
correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.

SECTION 9: DEFINITIONS
COMMON DEFINITIONS FOR ALL PLANS:
Capitalization is the addition of unpaid interest to
the principal balance of your loan. This will increase the
principal balance and the total cost of your loan.
A deferment is a period during which you are
entitled to postpone repayment of your loans. Interest is
not generally charged to you during a deferment on your
subsidized loans. Interest is always charged to you during
a deferment on your unsubsidized loans.
The William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct
Loan) Program includes Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct
Unsubsidized Loans, Direct PLUS Loans, and Direct
Consolidation Loans.
Family size always includes you and your children
(including unborn children who will be born during the
year for which you certify your family size), if the children
will receive more than half their support from you.
For the PAYE, IBR, and ICR Plans, family size always
includes your spouse. For the REPAYE plan, family size
includes your spouse unless your spouse's income is
excluded from the calculation of your payment amount.
For all plans, family size also includes other people
only if they live with you now, receive more than half
their support from you now, and will continue to receive
this support for the year that you certify your family size.
Support includes money, gifts, loans, housing, food,
clothes, car, medical and dental care, and payment of
college costs. Your family size may be different from the
number of exemptions you claim for tax purposes.
The Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program
includes Federal Stafford Loans (both subsidized and
unsubsidized), Federal PLUS Loans, Federal
Consolidation Loans, and Federal Supplemental Loans
for Students (SLS).
A forbearance is a period during which you are
permitted to postpone making payments temporarily,
allowed an extension of time for making payments, or
temporarily allowed to make smaller payments than
scheduled.
The holder of your Direct Loans is the U.S. Department of
Education (the Department). The holder of your FFEL Program
loans may be a lender, secondary market, guaranty agency, or
the Department. Your loan holder may use a servicer to
handle billing, payment, repayment options, and other
communications. References to “your loan holder” on this
form mean either your loan holder or your servicer.
A partial financial hardship is an eligibility requirement
for the PAYE and IBR plans. You have a partial financial
hardship when the annual amount due on all of your eligible
loans (and, if you are required to provide documentation of
your spouse's income, the annual amount due on your
spouse's eligible loans) exceeds what you would pay under
PAYE or IBR.
The annual amount due is calculated based on the greater
of (1) the total amount owed on eligible loans at the time
those loans initially entered repayment, or (2) the total
amount owed on eligible loans at the time you initially
request the PAYE or IBR plan. The annual amount due is
calculated using a standard repayment plan with a 10-year
repayment period, regardless of loan type. When determining
whether you have a partial financial hardship for the PAYE
plan, the Department will include any FFEL Program loans
that you have into account even though those loans are not
eligible to be repaid under the PAYE plan, except for: (1) a
FFEL Program loan that is in default, (2) a Federal PLUS Loan
made to a parent borrower, or (3) a Federal Consolidation
Loan that repaid a Federal or Direct PLUS Loan made to a
parent borrower.
The poverty guideline amount is the figure for your
state and family size from the poverty guidelines
published annually by the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services (HHS). If you are not a resident of a state
identified in the poverty guidelines, your poverty
guideline amount is the amount used for the 48
contiguous states.
The standard repayment plan has a fixed monthly
payment amount over a repayment period of up to 10
years for loans other than Direct or Federal Consolidation
Loans, or up to 30 years for Direct and Federal
Consolidation Loans.

repayment plan with monthly payments that are
generally equal to 15% (10% if you are a new borrower)
of your discretionary income, divided by 12.
Discretionary income for the IBR plan is the amount
by which your adjusted gross income exceeds 150% of
the poverty guideline amount.
Eligible loans for the IBR plan are Direct Loan and
FFEL Program loans other than: (1) a loan that is in
default, (2) a Direct or Federal PLUS Loan made to a
parent borrower, or (3) a Direct or Federal Consolidation
Loan that repaid a Direct or Federal PLUS Loan made to a

DEFINITIONS FOR THE ICR PLAN:
The Income-Contingent Repayment (ICR) plan is a
repayment plan with monthly payments that are the
lesser of (1) what you would pay on a repayment plan
with a fixed monthly payment over 12 years, adjusted
based on your income or (2) 20% of your discretionary
income divided by 12.
Discretionary income for the ICR plan is the amount
by which your adjusted gross income exceeds the
poverty guideline amount for your state of residence and
family size.
Eligible loans for the ICR plan are Direct Loan Program
loans other than: (1) a loan that is in default, (2) a Direct PLUS
Loan made to a parent borrower, or (3) a Direct PLUS
Consolidation Loan (based on an application received prior to
July 1, 2006 that repaid Direct or Federal PLUS Loans made to
a parent borrower). However, a Direct Consolidation Loan
made based on an application received on or after July 1,
2006 that repaid a Direct or Federal PLUS Loan made to a
parent borrower is eligible for the ICR plan.

Capitalization
Interest is capitalized when you are

recertify your income by the deadline or
when you voluntarily leave the plan.
If you are determined to no longer
have a “partial financial hardship”

income by the deadline, interest is
capitalized until the outstanding
principal balance on your loans is
10% greater than it was when you
entered the plan. It is also
capitalized if you leave the plan.
If you are determined to no longer
have a “partial financial hardship”,
fail to recertify your income by the
deadline, or leave the plan,

accruing interest on your loans is
capitalized annually until the
outstanding principal balance on
your loans is 10% greater than it
was when your loans entered
repayment.
Re-Entering
the Plan
Your loan holder will compare the total
of what you would have paid under
REPAYE to the total amount you were
required to pay after you left REPAYE. If
the difference between the two shows
that you were required to paid less by
leaving REPAYE, your new REPAYE
payment will be increased. The increase
is equal to the difference your loan
holder calculated, divided by the
number of months remaining in the 20-
or 25-year forgiveness period.
You must again show that you
have a “partial financial hardship”.
You must again show that you

SECTION 11: SAMPLE PAYMENT AMOUNTS
The tables below provide repayment estimates under the traditional and income-driven repayment plans. These figures are estimates based on an interest rate of
6%, the average Direct Loan interest rate for undergraduate and graduate borrowers. The figures also assume a family size of 1, that you live in the continental U.S.,
and that your income increases 5% each year. Various factors, including your interest rate, your loan debt, your income, if and how quickly your income rises, and
when you started borrowing may cause your repayment to differ from the estimates shown in these tables. These figures use the 2016 Poverty Guidelines and
Income Percentage Factors.

SECTION 12: IMPORTANT NOTICES
Privacy Act Notice. The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C.
552a) requires that the following notice be provided to you:
The authorities for collecting the requested
information from and about you are §421 et seq. and §451
et seq. of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (20
U.S.C. 1071 et seq. and 20 U.S.C. 1087a et seq.), and the
authorities for collecting and using your Social Security
Number (SSN) are §§428B(f) and 484(a)(4) of the HEA (20
U.S.C. 1078-2(f) and 1091(a)(4)) and 31 U.S.C. 7701(b).
Participating in the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL)
Program or the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct
Loan) Program and giving us your SSN are voluntary, but
you must provide the requested information, including your
SSN, to participate.
The principal purposes for collecting the
information on this form, including your SSN, are to verify
your identity, to determine your eligibility to receive a loan
or a benefit on a loan (such as a deferment, forbearance,
discharge, or forgiveness) under the FFEL and/or Direct
Loan Programs, to permit the servicing of your loans, and, if
it becomes necessary, to locate you and to collect and
report on your loans if your loans become delinquent or
default. We also use your SSN as an account identifier and to
permit you to access your account information
electronically.
The information in your file may be disclosed, on a
case-by-case basis or under a computer matching program,
to third parties as authorized under routine uses in the
appropriate systems of records notices. The routine uses of
this information include, but are not limited to, its disclosure
to federal, state, or local agencies, to private parties such as
relatives, present and former employers, business and
personal associates, to consumer reporting agencies, to
financial and educational institutions, and to guaranty
agencies in order to verify your identity, to determine your
eligibility to receive a loan or a benefit on a loan, to permit
the servicing or collection of your loans, to enforce the
terms of the loans, to investigate possible fraud and to verify
compliance with federal student financial aid program
regulations, or to locate you if you become delinquent in
your loan payments or if you default. To provide default rate
calculations, disclosures may be made to guaranty agencies,
to financial and educational institutions, or to state
agencies. To provide financial aid history information,
disclosures may be made to educational institutions.
To assist program administrators with tracking
refunds and cancellations, disclosures may be made to
guaranty agencies, to financial and educational institutions,
or to federal or state agencies. To provide a standardized
method for educational institutions to efficiently submit
student enrollment statuses, disclosures may be made to
guaranty agencies or to financial and educational
institutions. To counsel you in repayment efforts, disclosures
may be made to guaranty agencies, to financial and
educational institutions, or to federal, state, or local
agencies.
In the event of litigation, we may send records to the
Department of Justice, a court, adjudicative body, counsel,
party, or witness if the disclosure is relevant and necessary
to the litigation. If this information, either alone or with
other information, indicates a potential violation of law, we
may send it to the appropriate authority for action. We may
send information to members of Congress if you ask them
to help you with federal student aid questions. In
circumstances involving employment complaints,
grievances, or disciplinary actions, we may disclose relevant
records to adjudicate or investigate the issues. If provided
for by a collective bargaining agreement, we may disclose
records to a labor organization recognized under 5 U.S.C.
Chapter 71. Disclosures may be made to our contractors for
the purpose of performing any programmatic function that
requires disclosure of records. Before making any such
disclosure, we will require the contractor to maintain Privacy
Act safeguards. Disclosures may also be made to qualified
researchers under Privacy Act safeguards.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, no persons are required
to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a
valid OMB control number. The valid OMB control number
for this information collection is 1845-0102. Public reporting
burden for this collection of information is estimated to
average 20 minutes (0.33 hours) per response, including
time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data
sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and
