Recovering Defaulted Perkins Loans is Key to Funding Current Student Loans

The revolving funds that comprise the Perkins Program must be replenished to fuel future student funding. Also, since Perkins Loans typically go to an institution’s neediest students- continuance of the funding may determine if a student can finish their education. Along with providing the financing needed for secondary education, comes the need to resolve accounts that have defaulted.

Success Story

Profile:  A small college with over $3 million in defaulted Perkins Loans partnered with Alltran to work its entire portfolio regardless of the age of the loan.

Challenge:  Locating borrowers that had been in repayment for years. Convincing these borrowers to take actions to resolve their defaulted loans. Identifying deceased borrowers and acquiring death certificates for these accounts.


  • Intensive skip-tracing including death, bankruptcy, and service member scrubs.
  • Utilizing a Perkins specific letter series to notify borrowers where telephone numbers were not available to our counselors.
  • Identifying the jurisdiction where deceased borrowers last resided and securing certified copies of the death certificates for the client.
  • Offering borrowers the choice of options available to Perkins Borrowers to remove their accounts from default.


  • $778,000 recovered for the client which could then be lent to future students
  • Twenty-four (24) death certificates for deceased borrowers which enabled the client to cancel these loans with ED.
