This means the government will collect payments for longer periods of time.
To help you make sure you are eligible, here are the things you should know about deferring student loan payments until the beginning of the following year.
How to defer your student loanPayment deferralUnder the new student loan forgiveness plan, the government must collect payments from borrowers starting on July 1.
The federal government will also start collecting the amount of the payment after borrowers have made payments.
The amount of payments that the government is obligated to collect will depend on the amount you owe and the length of time you have been delinquent.
If you have outstanding payments, you will need to make payments during the deferral period.
If you have received a deferral notice, you’ll need to file a form with the federal government.
The form should be filed by July 15 and contain the following information:Your date of deferral.
The amount of your deferral payment.
What your repayment plan will look like.
What if you don’t make payments until your next payday?
You may be able to defer student loan payment while still being eligible for loan forgiveness.
If that’s the case, you may need to update your repayment plans.
For borrowers who have already made payments and are making payments on time, deferring payments will help them avoid any interest rate increases that may be required under the Trump plan.
However and if you are paying off your federal loans while deferring your payments, your monthly payments will likely be higher than what you would have been paying if you had not made your payments.
For those who haven’t made payments or have not been making payments in the past, the deferment period may be shorter.
If your payments have been late, you might be eligible for some type of deferment.
For more information, see the Department of Education website.
To learn more about deferral, check with your loan servicer or the Department.
If a deferment payment has already been made, you can continue to make monthly payments while deferral continues.
You may also want to consider other repayment options, including deferring monthly payments for up to 10 years.
If the government does not allow you to defer payments, that could be a problem for you.
You should also take note of other deferral options, such as forbearance, which lets you defer payment until you meet certain financial goals.
