I to be making a payment to good lakes because that an unsubsidized loan i took out yet when it involved completing the transaction these alternatives came:

"Applying this payments together refunds will aid lower the complete cost of your loan. How do refund payment work?

Applying these payments together refunds reduces exactly how much friend borrowed. Any existing accrued interest is recalculated, and you'll generate less interest overall, saving you the most money in the long run.

You are watching: Apply as refund or apply as payment reddit

If you'd rather use your payment as a consistent payment, select apply as Payment below. Your payment will be applied an initial to any accrued interest, climate to your principal balance. It's great to make beforehand interest payments, however you'll save much more money by applying your payment together a refund."

Can you part please call what a refund payment is? whereby does the refund come from? The explanation the website gives doesn't really define it.

A refund payment is one made in ~ 120 job of when the money was disbursed. These have any type of interest and origination fees linked with them backed off - it's choose if friend never borrowed that part of the money in ~ all. Perform it - it's a saver.

Money paid ago within 120 work of disbursement deserve to be used as a refund. My knowledge is that when you select to apply the payment as a "refund", it's basically as if you never obtained the money in the an initial place. So it's you who is refunding the borrower, in order to lowering the principal. The interest is recalculated to accurately reflect the reduced principal and it absolutely saves you money. If you make a "regular" payment it goes towards interest and also then principal. Think that a refund as a payment the goes directly toward lowering the principal.
