Federal Loan Default - Rehab Strategy Question

Recommended Posts



I have roughly $900 in federal student loan debt that is defaulted.


I am waiting on a call back from the CA my account is with to set up rehabilitation. Before I talk to them, I was hoping to get help with what my strategy should be.


I can afford to split the total amount in equal payments so it is paid off by the end of rehab.


Should I do that, or should I make a lesser payment per month, and when the loan is rehabbed, pay the remaining balance?


I don’t know how any of this works so I wasn’t sure if splitting it up so there is a $0 balance after the last payment could screw anything up with getting it out of default status and back into good standing on my CR


Thanks for for any advice!
