However, the SAVE Plan may not be the best option for everyone, depending on their current situation. For some borrowers, the SAVE Plan may not provide a reduced monthly payment amount compared to their current plan. There are other SAVE Plan benefits (such as the government interest subsidy and IDR loan forgiveness) to consider.
