Attachment 17 - Interest Accrual Form (pdf)

Text of PDF Attachment Above

Upon successfully completing a term of service and earning an education award, the National Service Trust will pay, on behalf of the borrower, all or a portion of the interest that accrued on a qualified student loan* during the member's term of national service. The loan must have been in forbearance, deferment or a grace period during this period. This form requests the loan holder to provide the interest amount and send the form to the Trust for payment. Payment will be made only to the loan holder. This payment, like payments from a member's education award, is considered taxable income in the year the payment is made.


FOR THE AMERICORPS MEMBER: A computer generated form is included in your award packet. However, if you use this blank form, fill out the Member Section, send the completed and signed form to each loan holder. Do not use the blank form before receiving your award. Your service period runs from the date you began your service (including any training period) to the date you completed it. Contact your project director if you do not know these dates. Incorrect service dates may delay processing payment.

* A QUALIFIED STUDENT LOAN is 1) any loan made, insured, or guaranteed pursuant to Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, other than a loan to a parent of a student pursuant to § 428B of such Act; 2) any loan made pursuant to Titles VII or VIII of the Public Health Service Act; and 3) any loan determined by an institution of higher education to be necessary to cover a student's cost of attendance at such an institution and made directly to a student by a state agency. Examples of these loans include Federal Family Education Loans (Subsidized & Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, Supplemental Loans to Students (SLS), Consolidation Loans), Federally Insured Student Loans (FISL), Federal Direct Loan Program Loans (FDLP), Perkins Loans, Health Education Assistance Loans (HEAL), Health Professions Student Loans (HPSL), Loans for Disadvantaged Students (LDS), Nursing Student Loans (NSL), Primary Care Loans (PCL), and loans made directly to members by a state's Higher Education Authority and a state institution of higher education. (The 'maker' of every loan should be cited on the loan's Promissory Note.) 

Privacy Act Statement: In compliance with the privacy Act of 1974, the following information is provided: The collection of this information is authorized by the provisions of the National and Community Service Act, as amended by the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993. The primary purpose of the information is to enable an AmeriCorps member to have a payment made for all or a portion of the interest that accrued while the member was serving in an AmeriCorps project. The form asks the member's loan holder to inform the Trust of the amount of interest that accrued in order for a payment to be made. Information is for official use only. Your Social Security Number (SSN) is solicited under the authority of the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. 6011(b) and 6109), for use as a taxpayer identification number; disclosure is MANDATORY because the Internal Revenue Service has determined that the education award is taxable income in the year it is paid. Furnishing all other information on this form is voluntary, but failure to do so may result in a denial of your interest being paid or it may delay the payment.
