Benefits of Direct Debit
- Direct Debit is the most convenient way to make your student loan payments - on time, every month.
- Direct Debit is a free service. And you may qualify for an interest rate reduction when your application is approved.
- Set up an electronic deduction from your checking or savings account on the same date each month.
- Since your loan payment happens automatically, it's never late.
Are your loans more than 270 days past due?
If you have defaulted loans being serviced by PHEAA and you'd like to sign up for Direct Debit, please complete, sign, and submit the Direct Debit Default Collections Electronic Funds Transfer Agreement (PDF).
