This form serves as the means by which borrowers in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) and Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Programs may request an Income-Based or Income-Contingent Repayment Plans if they meet certain statutory and regulaotry criteria. The U.S. Department of Education uses the information collected on these forms to determine whether a borrower meets the eligibility requirements for the specific Income-Based or Income-Contingent Repayment Plan that the borrower has requested. The burden hours associated with this collection is increasing for one reason; namely, that the collection is being combined with all Income-Based or Income-Contingent materials contained in the soon-to-be revised 1845-0014 (Direct Loan Repayment Plan Selection Form) and soon-to-be discontinued 1845-0016 (Direct Loan IBR/ICR Alternative Documentation of Income Form), so that the forms associated with this collection may be used in both the FFEL and Direct Loan Program. However, because the form has been greatly streamlined, there is a significant burden reduction associated with this clearance that is masked by the increased respondent population.

IC Title Form No. Form Name
Income-Driven Repayment Plan Request N/A Income-Driven Repayment Plan Request - Form IDR

Miscellaneous Actions
The Department is requesting a revision of the current information collection caused by a program change due to agency discretion. We estimate that the number of respondents will increase by 2,930,868 due to the addition of the new REPAYE plan as well as an estimated increase of the number of borrowers who wish to utilize an IDR plan to ease the repayment of their federal debt. However we do not believe that the time estimated to complete the required request form will increase due to improved skip-logic and the ability to import income information directly from the Internal Revenue Service.
