Student Loan, Student Loan for Parents, Bar Study Loan, or
Medical Residency Loan through the employer’s or partner’s

Student Loan or Student Loan for Parents, a minimum of

Reduction Benefit is allowed per primary borrower for the
Citizens Education Refinance Loan and Education Refinance Loan
for Parents or per loan for the Citizens Student Loan, Student

Principal balance reduction may take up to the second month
following the loan’s final disbursement date to be applied and
may be reduced if the loan amount is reduced or cancelled. The
Principal Balance Reduction Benefit will be processed as a
reduction of the loan’s principal balance and will not impact
the required monthly payment. The borrower is solely responsible
for any taxes that may be owed as a result of the principal
balance reduction earned. A tax advisor should be consulted.
