Federal Loans and Mortgages

If a student loan requires a cosigner is this a bank loan and not a Federal Student Loan and will cosigning affect your potential borrowing power?

A federal Stafford loan does NOT require a cosigner.

If you do co-sign a private loan, both parties have liability to the debt. The co-signer is liable for the balance just as if they had co-signed for the student for a car, signature loan, mortgage, etc.

It is just a different type of loan that can be taken out from the bank. Liability standards/payment terms can verify by the qualifications of the co-signer or student - so an inquiry to the banking institution you would do these loans for would be the safest bet.

Federal Loans and Mortgages

Can an account be levied or judgment put on a bank account when the money in the account is from a direct federal student loan?

The source of the asset really makes no difference. It is only in your accounting that it is student loan money....and there is nothing to say student loan money can't be used to pay off debts you have that aren't to the school is there?

Generally, once you take charge of the funds, (as in the loan), they lose their integrity as being any particular type/source of money. Especially if comingeled with other funds. (For example, they can't seize SS checks, but once you cash it...it's no longer protected...it's like any other money). Had you had the money paid directly to the school, they probably couldn't have touched it..even knowing it was an "asset" you had coming.

Why can't a borrower consolidate private student loans and Federal Stafford loans together?

First I am not positive that you cannot do such. If that does hold true it could be due to a variety of details including: - interest rates for Federal loans are set by law and are standard across the board. The financial institution you have your private loans through could vary - payment terms may also verify between the two Private loans are secured by an individual's credit worthiness or his cosigner's. Federally back loan are secured by The united States Department Of Education. Loan amounts vary depending on each student needs, the cost to attend and ability to pay back. You will never be able to consolidate federally backed and private loans with a federally back consolidation loan. However, you will be able to combine them all with a private consolidation loan.

Can an attorney or debt collector freeze your bank account even though the money in the account is a federal student loan?

i am pretty sure they cant because that was given to you and you didnt make or earn that money the whole reason is to punish you by taking the money you worked hard for but im pretty sure they cant unless they are greedy and they find a loophole.

The above is incorrect in just about every way, and I really don't undersand why he would think someone can't take money you DIDN'T work for...as if it's more acceptable to take only what you have worked for? And of course...the student loan isn't a gift, it's a loan (no loans aren't gifts)...you WILL work to repay it anyway.

And obviously, the reason they are freezing or seizing the funds is because you owe them money for something you promised to pay....and didn't...so to use the aboves logic....their just trying to get what you as a greedy SOB stole from them, (while you were taking more from someone else). And what exactly did they do you were punishing them for by not paying your debt? Sorry, although your looking for one, no loophole for you here.

Generally, once you take charge of the funds, (as in the loan), they lose their integrity as being any particular type/source of money. Especially if comingeled with other funds. (For example, they can't seize SS checks, but once you cash it...it's no longer protected...it's like any other money). Had you had the money paid directly to the school, they probably couldn't have touched it..even nowing it was an "asset" you had coming.

What happens to federal student loans during chapter 13 bankruptcy?

The answer differs from one bankruptcy jurisdiction to another, so discuss it with your bankruptcy attorney.

In general, student loans are unsecured loans and have to be treated as all unsecured creditors in a plan. The student loan lender cannot use its collection/garnishment powers until the case is over.

That means you may be paying the student loan lender nothing or up to full payment over the life of the plan. Few people can pay student loans off completely in 5 years or less, so interest will accumulate. When the plan ends, you will owe a lot more.

In some jurisdictions, it is possible to place student loans in a separate class and treat them differently in a plan, or pay them outside the plan as a monthly expense in Schedule J.

How much money did McCain get from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?

Check the link below ---- Federal law forbids candidates from receiving money directly from companies. The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics tracks donations from employees of various companies. The center's list of contributions from Fannie and Freddie employees places Obama second. Ahead of him is Sen. Chris Dodd, Democratic chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. One method of calculating the total listed for Obama is $126,349 in less than 4 years - a tiny fraction of the approximately $390 million his campaign has raised, according to the center. The list shows McCain has received a total of $21,550 in 26 years from Fannie and Freddie employees. The list includes donations of at least $200 from those who receive paychecks from Fannie and Freddie. It also includes donations from political action committees - pooled contributions from employees. Obama hired former Fannie Mae CEO Jim Johnson to vett his VP candidate and former Fannie Mae CEO Franklin Raines is a financial consultant. ************************************************************** Check the Fact Link to the McCain Camp fabrication that Franklin Raines is an Obama financial consultant. The above posting is a McCain LIE!

Did the FBI conclude its investigation of Lehman Brothers Fannie Mae Freddie Mac and insurer AIG before the US government went ahead with the 700 billion dollar bailout?

The FBI has just started an investigation into the collapse of Bear Stearns, Fannie, Freddie, Lehman and AIG. This investigation will likely takes months if not years and will not affect the federal bailout.

The investigations were really about the balance sheets of all the names above to find out how much they really needed and most of the people who looked into the balance sheet were Goldman and other wall street firm bankers.
