Deal Score0

It does not seem that my student loan as part of my debt each month when applying for a loan. I was in forbearance, but do not pay each month and I recently able to start repaying the full amount. Let me know. Please no assumptions – just to know if you are sure. Thank you. Objectives

    Yes, they are included in your “Debt to Income Ratio” calculation when they are no longer in forbearance.

    Yes, they show up. They even show up while you are in school. My husband and I applied for a mortgage while I was in school, and all my student loans showed up even though it showed they were deferred (but in good standing). I asked the girl handling our mortgage if it would be better for me to go ahead and start paying on my loans, and she told me NO! She said it would show the loans were active. So, apparently paying on them really doesn’t help you even if you are paying on time.

    Yes… The loan is on your credit reports.. They will take in account all loans and open, closed, paid and delinquent accounts.. The ONLY bills they will forgive are medical bills

    Someone said that being in forbearance and paying your account on time will help your credit… From experience with my ex husband it does not help you in any way

    a Student loan is a normal loan that you just pay less back over a longer period than a standard loan but it will show up and will show on any credit you try to take out too

    Yes, those show up. When I applied for a mortgage, my husband’s loans were in deferrment, and they still showed up as outstanding obligations. I believe forebearance would be no different.

    I used to work collections for student loans. Student loans will show on a credit report even if inf forbarence. They are coded according to status (ex: forberance, on time, defaulted, etc.). As long as they are in forb. or paid on time they will not hurt your credit and may infact help establish a good credit history.

    If you are going to apply for a mortgage, it would be smart to pull a copy of your credit report now ( and see exactly what is showing.

    If there are errors, dispute them with the credit bureaus. If you have derogatory items, you may want to settle them. Most mortgage companies will require you to settle any open derogatory accounts before approving you for the mortgage.
