Default Prevention
Default Prevention - Default is the failure of a borrower to make installment payments when due, or to meet other terms of the promissory note.  There are many ways to prevent your loan(s) from defaulting which include Deferment , Forbearance, and Income-sensitive Repayment options.  For more information regarding OSFA's Default Prevention Program, visit Navigating Your Financial Future.
Deferments - are tools available to borrowers to help them meet their loan repayment obligations.  Once the repayment period begins, borrowers are entitled to defer principal payments on a FFELP loan when applicable eligibility criteria is met. Types of deferments  and eligibility chart.
Forbearance - is a tool lenders can use to assist borrowers in meeting their loan repayment obligations.   By granting forbearance, a lender permits a temporary cessation of payments, allows an extension of time for making payments, or temporarily accepts smaller payments than were previously scheduled.  A lender is encouraged to grant a forbearance to prevent a borrower from defaulting on their loan repayment obligation.  Forbearance Eligibility Chart.
