Hello.

Can anyone point to where REPAYE and IBR require extra payments be applied to fees and interest before principal?  The service loan providers say this is mandated but I just don’t want to take their word for it.  I want to try to pay these loans as fast as possible and reduce the amount of interest that accrues with my extra payments.  Am I able to cite to a provision and push back?
