What is the Federal Loan Rehabilitation Program?

Federal Loan Rehabilitation is a one-time opportunity that may be available for borrowers that have not rehabilitated their loan(s) on or after August 14, 2008 that re-establishes a payment history making income-driven payments that will delete the default notation after successful completion of the program.

Advantages of rehabilitation include:

  • Your loan(s) will no longer be considered to be in a default status.
  • The default status reported by your loan holder to the national credit bureaus will be deleted.
  • You will be eligible for the same benefits that were available on the loans before the loans defaulted. This may include deferment, forbearance, and Title IV eligibility.
  • Wage garnishment ends and the Internal Revenue Service no longer withholds your income tax refund.

If you are a Direct Loan of FFEL Loan Borrower:

  • To rehabilitate a Direct Loan, you must make at least nine (9) full payments of an agreed amount within twenty (20) days of their monthly due dates over a ten (10) month period to the U.S. Department of Education (Department). Payments secured from you on an involuntary basis, such as through wage garnishment or litigation, cannot be counted toward your nine (9) payments. Once you have made the required payments, your loan(s) will be returned to loan servicing.

If you are a Perkins loan borrower:

  • To rehabilitate a Perkins Loan, you much make nine (9) on-time, monthly payments of an agreed amount within twenty (20) days of their monthly due dates to the Department. Payments secured from you on an involuntary basis, such as through wage garnishment or litigation, cannot be counted toward your nine (9) payments. Once you have made the required payments, your loan(s) will continue to be serviced by the Department until the balance owed is paid in full.

Rehabilitation payments are based on your income, so you may be required to provide a copy of your most recent tax return (within the last two years), a completed signed Financial Information Statement, copies of paystubs for yourself and your spouse, if applicable, as well as documentation of regular monthly expenses, if needed.

​You can download a transcript of your most recent tax return at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript. See ‘What paperwork do I need?’ for other forms. Please contact FHC at (877) 677-9126 to go over your options.
