Federal Student Loan Forms
You should always check with your loan holder to make sure these forms are the most recent. Some federal student loan forms are available on the Department of Education library web site. Some of these forms are available in Spanish on the site. Note that some forms that were previously available on the Department’s web site are not currently available. The Department claims that it will update the site soon (stay tuned!).
Many of these forms can be submitted on-line. You should make sure that you get confirmation whenever you send in a form and keep copies.

More broadly, “Español” appears in the upper right hand corner of every page on myeddebt.ed.gov. When you click on that it moves you to the Spanish version of the web site.
Federal Student Aid wants borrowers to discuss all options and eligibility requirements prior to applying for a deferment or forbearance, application forms for these entitlements are only available from individual loan servicers. This is to avoid situations where borrowers who are unaware of all options inadvertently apply for forbearance when they could be eligible for income-driven repayment, deferments, or discharge. All servicers provide some forms in both English and Spanish, including:
- Economic Hardship Deferment (HRD)
- In-School Deferment (SCH)
- Parent Plus Borrower Deferment (PLUS)
- Unemployment Deferment (UNEM)
- General Forbearance (GFB)
- Mandatory Forbearance (SERV)
- Student Loan Debt Burden Forbearance (SLDB)
- Income Driven Repayment Plan Request (IDR)
