Student Loan Relief for Borrowers

The CARES Act included more than $30 billion in emergency education funding and eliminated income tax on student loan repayment assistance by an employer.  To provide relief to student borrowers, the bill pauses payments and suspends debt collection on most federal student loans until September 30, 2020.  During this time, borrowers will be able to:

  • Pause payments for federal student loan borrowers who have Direct Loans and Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL), which means these borrowers will not be required to make any payments toward outstanding interest or principal balance.
  • Suspend interest accrual for such loans so that these balances don’t accrue.
  • Avoid forced collections such as garnishment of wages, tax refunds, & Social Security benefits.
  • Halt negative credit reporting.
  • Ensure a borrower continues to receive credit toward Public Service Loan Forgiveness,
  • Income-Driven Repayment forgiveness, and loan rehabilitation.
