What can be done to freeze interest being added to a default student loan.

Latta, SC |
Filed under: Debt

I don't want to dismiss my student loan but I would like for the company to freeze adding any more interest after payment has started. I have started paying and would like to have the interest dismissed or frozen. Can file bankruptcy to freeze the loan while I pay on it.

If these are federally backed student loans, you can not discharge them in bankruptcy. You may be able to reduce your interest by consolidating the loans with one lender.
