1. To qualify for the 1.0% principal reduction, Stafford borrowers must submit the EdFed Rewards Principal Reduction Form within 90 days of the date of their first payment. If the PLUS loan is prepaid in full within the first 24 months of repayment, the principal reduction will be reapplied to the balance owed.

2. Zero-guarantee fee is dependent upon school preference for guarantor. Check with your school for more information.

3. Proof of graduation is required. Acceptable forms are a copy of the borrower’s diploma or final transcript.

4. For complete details of our EdFed Rewards Program please visit www.edfedrewards.com

5. MOHELA reserves the right to modify, expand, or discontinue these programs at any time without notice. Rates are reviewed annually on July 1. Rate Relief and Public Service Benefits are offered exclusively by MOHELA Lender-Partners and are available to all borrowers in repayment whose loans are owned by MOHELA and serviced at the Chesterfield, MO servicing center. These benefits are not applicable to loans placed in consolidation. This benefit does not lower the monthly payment, but rather reduces the interest rate and results in more dollars being applied to the principal of the loan. MOHELA reserves the right to discontinue offering Rate Relief benefits to any borrower whose account experiences 2 denied auto-debits, or in the event an auto-debit is terminated for any reason. Loans guaranteed by guarantors other than the Missouri state guarantee agency may qualify for a reduced level of Rate Relief. Program start date is July 1, 2003.

6. Sallie Mae Cash Back is available on Stafford loans first disbursed between July 1, 2002 and June 30, 2005 that are made with a Sallie Mae lender partner. Sallie Mae must own and service these loans throughout repayment. Participation in Automatic Debit is not required to receive the Sallie Mae Cash Back savings, but it is encouraged since it can help you make timely payments. Stafford loans first disbursed between January 1, 1993 and June 30, 2002 continue to be eligible to receive the Great Rewards¨ and Automatic Debit program benefits on those loans. Loans eligible for the Direct Repay automatic debit interest rate reduction must be owned and serviced by Sallie Mae or owned by Sallie Mae and serviced by a participating servicer. Your monthly payment amount remains the same and you save money by repaying loans more quickly because the loan balance may be paid off faster. The Direct Repay automatic debit 0.25 percentage point interest-rate reduction is available on PLUS loans first disbursed through June 30, 2005.



How EdFed Helped others!
The loan representative handling my loan was extremely aggressive in following up on a consolidation application I started. And I'm thankful for that. Because of all the reminders, and the convenience of pre-paid FedEx envelopes, I'm sending my application back and will save lots of money. Thanks for not forgetting about me.

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.
