A question that often comes up when considering student loans and how they can apply to the unemployed is “Do I qualify for loans if I’m unemployed?” There are a number of things to consider. The fact is that you may qualify for an unsecured loan but you may not be able to refinance with a credit card or other loan.
Student loans are typically unsecured loans and they are also referred to as federal student loans. If you have an active FAFSA, (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) this should show that you meet the minimum qualifications for a free government college education. FAFSA shows that you have the income to support a full-time student at your chosen college or university. However, even with the additional payment, most students are able to pay their monthly bills with their money coming from an active FAFSA. Most student loans are, in fact, unsecured student loans. And unsecured student loans are the most common type of loans that you might be able to qualify for.
The reason that you are probably qualified for a student loan based on FAFSA is because you likely are eligible for other student loans as well. Most of the student loans offered by your college or university are unsecured student loans. Unsecured student loans are based on the credit rating of the borrower. And the higher your credit rating, the higher the chances are that you will be approved for a student loan based on your credit rating. However, this does not mean that you can use a credit card companies and obtain a loan if you have a credit score lower than 680. You must make sure that you will not have difficulty paying off your loan. Another reason that you may not be able to refinance with a credit card company is if you do not have sufficient equity built up in your home to pay off your credit card debt. The reason that you may not be able to refinance your unsecured student loan is because of your existing financial obligations. It is also a good idea to check with your existing lender to see if there are any allowances for unemployed and deferred payments. Many lenders will grant a lower interest rate and lower monthly payment on a private student loan if you have had a job for a certain amount of time before the application for the loan was submitted. With regards to unemployed with bad credits and student loans, your current employer may be able to grant you a deferment of your loan until you find a new job. Your new employer will be responsible for paying a portion of your loan in the event that you are laid off. Of course, in order to be approved for a student loan based on your unemployment, you will have to fill out and submit paperwork with the Department of Education. It’s important to make sure that you have all of the documentation necessary to prove your unemployment. When filling out your form, be sure to list all of your prior student loans and your most recent loan. This will help you understand how much money you will have to borrow based on your unemployment. Students can also try low interest personal loans.
One of the most important things to remember when looking into student loans and how they apply to the unemployed is that you must make sure that you are qualified. Once you have filled out the paperwork, submit it to the Department of Education and meet all of the eligibility requirements, then you will receive a loan and it will be based on your personal situation.
