Now is the Time to Consolidate!
By Brooke Heath
You've been putting off consolidating your federal student loans. You know that you should, and you've had a nagging feeling for a while now telling you to just do it. But if you procrastinate much longer, your chance to save thousands of dollars with EdFed's borrower benefits may be gone! Now is the time to consolidate your federal student loans!
The government is pushing through legislation that will lead to the elimination of great borrower benefits for federal programs, like EdFed's 1.25% interest-rate reduction! But if you act before the October 1 deadline, you will still have the opportunity to receive these incredible benefits!
The New Legislation
Known as the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, this new legislation will cut about $21 billion from the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program, which EdFed is a part of. This budget cut will affect EdFed, as it may lead to the elimination of our borrower benefits after October 1.
EdFed's Borrower Benefits
Currently, EdFed offers borrower benefits that can reduce the interest rate on your federal consolidation by as much as 1.25%. However, after the October 1 deadline, this may no longer be the case. That is why you need to act now and begin your federal student loan consolidation with EdFed!
By acting now, you can take advantage of these great borrower benefits:
An immediate 0.25% interest-rate reduction when you sign up for our automated debit payment program
An additional 1.00% interest-rate reduction after 36 consecutive on-time payments
To save you as much as possible, we guarantee that once you have earned our borrower benefits, they cannot be lost or revoked, regardless of the situation! EdFed guarantees them for the life of your consolidation! None of our competitors can make the same claim. However, after October 1, these great benefits may no longer be available!

Education is one of the most basic right of any human, but with the increase in prices and the costs involved in education this has made these rights turn into a privilege which very few can enjoy. Any normal person today in the whole of United States has to take an education loan at one point of time to pay for their education fees.
Our Select 5/Graduated Payments repayment option allows for interest-only payments for the first 2 years of repayment. In the third through fifth years, payments increase to include a portion of principal. In the sixth year, payments increase to level installments of principal and interest payments for the remaining term of the loan.
