© 2013 PASFAA The Value of a Private Loan Lender List and Keeping It Simple- Julie Moreno Rehder, ELM Resources
© 2013 PASFAA MYTH: Government loans are always less expensive for borrowers than private loans. FACT: When measuring the true cost of credit through an APR comparison, private loans often compare favorably to unsubsidized federal loans, particularly Graduate PLUS Loans. MYTH: Private student loans are all variable products with extremely high interest rates. FACT: Most lenders offer students the choice of fixed-rate or variable-rate products. The Value of Private Loans
© 2013 PASFAA MYTH: Private student loans can pose more risk for borrowers than federal student loans. FACT: Federal loans, in contrast to private student loans, are provided without the most basic consumer protection – a determination of the borrowers ability to repay. MYTH: Students and families do not receive adequate information about private student loan terms before borrowing. FACT: Lenders provide three notices containing 18 disclosure items about private loan terms at three different times before a private loan is made. These disclosures are required by law. The Federal Reserve conducted extensive consumer testing before establishing these new disclosure requirements, which have been in effect since February 2010. The Value of Private Loans
