You remain eligible for repayment assistance based on your total household income if you are at home raising children and your spouse’s employment would qualify (e.g., he or she works enough hours and months, does not work for family, is not self-employed and is a college graduate with a bachelor’s degree), and neither you nor your spouse is enrolled as a graduate student. Your minimum payment calculation on IDR is affected when adding children to your family.
