If you’re interested in knowing what’s going on in college planning and preparation, sign up for the monthly Your KHEAA College Connection. We’ll email you a link to the latest edition of this electronic newsletter each month.

You’ll find stories about planning, preparing and paying for college for students of all ages, as well as general education news that you can use. Check out the latest edition to see what it’s like.

For more information, visit studentaid.ed.gov. For an application for IBR, ICR and Pay As You Earn, visit studentloans.gov. For all other repayment plans, please contact your loan servicer or lender.

No matter which plan you choose, check with your servicer about electronic statements and automatic payments. You can receive your statement electronically, make a payment online or schedule a monthly electronic debit to pay your bill. Some servicers will reduce your interest rate if you pay by electronic debiting.

Electronic debiting is the most convenient and efficient way to make your student loan payments. You won’t have to remember to mail a check each month, and your loan payments will always be on time. To sign up for electronic debit, contact your servicer. If you don’t know who your servicer is, look it up on www.nslds.ed.gov.
