Forms.
    OMB Control Number: 1845-0102.

    Abstract: The U.S. Department of Education uses the information 
collected on these forms to determine whether a borrower meets the 
eligibility requirements for the specific Income-Based or Income-

hours associated with this collection is increasing for one reason; 
namely, that the collection is being combined with all Income-Based or 
Income-Contingent materials contained in the soon-to-be revised 1845-
0014 (Direct Loan Repayment Plan Selection Form), so that the forms 
associated with this collection may be used in both the FFEL and Direct 
Loan Program.
