• Watch out for companies that offer "student debt relief" for a fee -- there may be individuals or entities falsely asserting affiliation with the U.S. Department of Education, claiming to be a governmental agency while offering services that are readily available for free through FedLoan/Mohela. You never have to pay for help.

  • The student loan payment pause is extended until the U.S. Department of Education is permitted to implement the debt relief program or the litigation is resolved. Payments will restart 60 days later. If the debt relief program has not been implemented and the litigation has not been resolved by June 30, 2023, payments will resume 60 days after that.
