Consumer Proposals and Student Loans.

Student Loans

Table of Contents

After university – many former students are left with sizable student loans to pay.

What happens to student loans when a former student has masses of other unmanageable debt and is considering a Consumer Proposal?

If it has been more than seven years since the person ‘ceased to be a full-time or a part-time student’ then they might be able to include the student loans in their Proposal. However, if it has been less than seven years, they will most likely not be able to erase their student loans with a Proposal. Individuals need to speak with a Bankruptcy Trustee to review the specifics of their situation.

How does a Consumer Proposal work if the student loans cannot be erased in the Proposal?

In general, once it has been accepted by the majority of the unsecured creditors, the Proposal proceeds in the standard manner. Monthly payments are made to the Trustee, who disburses the payments to the unsecured creditors, including the holders of the student loans.

Once a Consumer Proposal is successfully completed, the former student is required to start making their student loan payments again. During the Consumer Proposal period, the interest on the student loans continues to be added to the debt, so it is likely that at the end of the Proposal, the total owing on the student loans will be more than when the Proposal started.

We suggest it might be in their best interest for the debtor to maintain a payment to the Student Loans Program, if they are able to afford this after taking into consideration their proposal payment and other obligations. Maintaining even the interest only portion, will keep the total loan within grasp.

If you have outstanding student loans and are considering a Consumer Proposal or a Bankruptcy, you need to speak with a Licensed Bankruptcy Trustee.

I have been surviving on paycheck-to-paycheck basis and could not go any further because the lending interests just accumulated beyond what I can afford. Fortunately, a good friend recommended Grace Cuffaro from David Sklar & Assoc. and I finally got to settle my financial obligations in a reasonable way. Don't go anywhere else; ignore those financial brokers and social media ads who just want more money from you - go directly to the people who can really save you from drowning in debt.
