This is my first post and I am asking for some assistance. I have been looking for 2 days on how to apply for student loan rehabilitation. I want to begin to rehab my loans, but I keep running into "how" to rehab, not how to apply. I have gone to the NDLS website and found out who my loans are with: They are with DIRECT STAFFORD UNSUBSIDIZED, STAFFORD UNSUBSIDIZED, and also STAFFORD SUBSIDIZED, but I cannot for the life of me find a link on how to rehab and there is no phone number associated with the loan holders. Is there a Stafford website that I can apply for rehabilitation. I can find all things for consolidating a student loan. Just not rehabbing a student loan. Help!
I am one who tries to find information on their own, but I am either I am looking in the wrong areas or I am missing something. I am running into Google research exhaustion trying to dig up information that seems like it should be easy to find. It seems like there is a big secret, but common sense knows its not.
Any spinning me around and pointing me into the right direction would be highly appreciated.

You will need to call the DOE at 1-800-621-3115. Explain your situation to the CSR who answers the phone and they will point you in the right direction. Several forum members, including me, have survived SL rehab. You can do it!
Keep us posted...

I am surprised in the day and age that they actually want people to call? Most places avoid having customers call at at costs and either give them automation or a website to click and to handle it themselves.
I thank you again kindly and will begin my journey there.

Those are actually the loan TYPES, not the loan holders. Since you're in default, you'll probably be dealing with one of the collection agencies that contracts with the DoE to collect student loans.
On the NSLDS website, if you click on the number next to each of your loans, you'll be taken to another page with more detailed information, including the name and contact information for the loan's current holder.

I am making my 8th payment tomorrow! One month left (if it gets picked up right away)!!!!
I did not contact anyone about going into rehab - they called me several times to make the arrangments. I had to wait until I knew I could swing 9 monthly payments because of the large sum they are.
