How to repay a National Student Financial Aid Scheme Loan

 
How to repay a National Student Financial Aid Scheme Loan: Loan repayments are based on the salary that you earn; you start paying them back once your salary is R30,000 or more per year. The repayment rate is reasonable: 3% of the annual salary, increasing to a maximum of 8% when your salary reaches R59,300 or more per year. This means you will pay back R900 a year on a salary of R30 000 a year, or R84 per month. Not a bad deal, especially when you consider that the interest charged on the loan is subsidised at 80% of the rate that the commercial rate banks would charge.

Even though the National Student Financial Aid Scheme Act of 1999 allows National Student Financial Aid Scheme to have employers deduct loan repayments from the monthly salaries of those who’ve been assisted by the scheme, about 20% of National Student Financial Aid Scheme recipients have never paid back a cent. In 2013, National Student Financial Aid Scheme was owed R15.6-billion in unpaid loans. This means the next generation of needy students have to fight that much harder for a piece of the pie. So if you get National Student Financial Aid Scheme funding and you get your degree, be a good sport and pay back the money.
