To apply for OSLA forbearance, you will need to complete the
OSLA Forbearance Form, sign, and return it to OSLA at the address indicated on the form.
If your account is delinquent and you have determined that you do not qualify for the deferments listed, you may call and request a verbal forbearance to bring your account current or delay the payment for up to three months. A verbal forbearance is a convenient way to make your account current until you can obtain, complete and return your deferment request.
If your account is 60 days or more past due, a delinquency will be reflected on your credit report.
