Sallie Mae does not guarantee the estimator accuracy or applicability to a person's individual circumstances. The estimated monthly payment assumes a fixed payment amount and fixed interest rate for the life of the loan and does not account for a variable interest rate. The estimate does not account for missed payments, the use of deferment or forbearance, or any required minimum monthly payment amount for a particular loan. For new loans, this estimate does not account for any payments made during the in-school and separation or grace periods, or any interest that accrues or capitalizes during that time. For Sallie Mae loans entering principal and interest repayment, this estimate does not factor in accruing interest or any payments made between now and when the loan enters principal and interest repayment.
