Can I change income driven repayment plans if my monthly payment goes up?

Yes, you can change your plan. However, every time you do, the deferred interest on your loan is capitalized. Capitalization means that all of the deferred interest will be added to the outstanding principal balance and it will start to compound interest. Simply, this means that your loan balance will grow at a faster rate over time.
