The pause on federal student loan payments has been extended by the federal government. You will NOT have to make your loan payments that would have been restarted in January.
Earlier this year, the Biden-Harris Administration announced a student debt relief plan for working and middle-class borrowers. Millions of Americans applied and were found to be eligible for relief. But lawsuits challenged the program and froze the ability to finalize debt relief.
Targeted student debt relief addresses the financial harms of the pandemic, helps smooth borrowers' transition back to repayment and helps borrowers at highest risk of delinquencies or default once payments resume.
As a result, the pause on federal student loan payments, interest, and collections has been extended. The pause will end 60 days after the Supreme Court makes a decision on the case. If no decision has been made by June 30, 2023, payments will resume 60 days after that.
