use student loan consolidation that will allow them combine their education loans into
one loan from a single lender. That new loan - consolidation loan - will be then used
to pay off the balances of the originating loans.

The process of consolidating student loans is similar to refinancing a mortgage. It's a
great way to improve own finances as it gives the borrower a number of benefits, such
as: lower monthly payment, lower interest rate, longer repayment schedule, lack of
application fees and of credit check as well as deferment and forbearance options.

In this article I will discuss the issue of the student loan consolidation rate and how it
is determined in federal and private consolidation.

First of all, it's important to remember that usually it is not a good idea to include any
of your federal education loans if you decide to take a private student consolidation
loan. In most cases, they don't come with private student consolidation loans.

The higher the interest rate, the longer the total cost of taking the loan will be. Also,
getting a fixed interest rate is preferable to a variable rate, as it is just much easier to
live with the fixed rate and not to worry that it may significantly go up and negatively
impact your financial well being.

However, it's only true for the federal student loan consolidations, but in most cases
the private consolidations don't feature fixed interest rates. Because the private
consolidation loans belong to the consumer loans, they are credit-based and have to
carry variable interest rates.

To the contrary, all federal student consolidation loans carry a fixed interest rates,
because they are taxpayer-supported.

Those bases differ from loan to loan, but the lenders usually choose one of these -
either the Prime Rate or the 3-month LIBOR Rate. The second one has been
significantly lower over the last few years, thus it's more advantageous for the
borrowers. The lenders arrive at the final interest rate by adding a margin determined
by the borrower's credit rating.

Later on, you may also earn another interest rate reduction if you continually make
on-time monthly payments for a certain number of months (e.g., 24, or 36, or 48
months).

Any interest rate reduction will usually mean thousands of dollars in savings, so try as
much as you can to use all opportunities to earn those reductions and save a lot of
money.
Hard times have hit almost everybody, and it is not their fault either. In this case, the
monthly income doesn't even come close to the monthly out go, and many families
may need debt repair.

Consumers have been tricked from debt fix firms, and it is so sad, they were already
in debt and needed aid, and then pay out a large amount of money thinking they can
relax a bit, and the company just up and disappears. Know your state and local laws,
ensure you get things in writing and the writing means something in a court of law.

The best part is you have protection, your state has probably already enacted laws that
can help you differentiate from a corporation that will honestly help you, and one that
is just out for your money.

Do not forget, credit card companies aren't the only ones who you can negotiate a
lump sum payment with, other companies wish to clear their books as well, and may
take less.

First off, they don't have time to mess with correcting their credit record, don't know
how to negotiate, and naturally, don't have the experience. Also, they understand that
these companies already have a relationship with the credit companies and will know
precisely how to deal with them.

If you have finance Problems, you're going to need credit record repair[**] there's a
pretty good chance you have many negative reports on your record when you seek out
a debt fix company.

An honest debt repair company can actually help you with your debt load, and fix
your credit history too. Just learn all you are able to concerning debt fix firms and
select one which has a record of more than just a couple years of helping consumers
out before you pay them any money.
