Note: When the consolidation process is complete, a loan holder will receive payment for the sum of principal, interest, and allowable collection costs and fees. A guarantor will receive payment for allowable collection costs and fees. However, a guarantor's principal and interest balances will be accounted for with a SF-1081 form from Treasury.
