Deferment, Forbearance And Student Loan Forgiveness

If you like our content, make sure to subscribe to our channel! 

Having a tough time with student loan debt? You might be able to temporarily delay repayment on your Federal student loans with deferment, forbearance, or a student loan forgiveness program.

Deferment pauses repayment of the loan principal and the government may actually pay for the interest, while forbearance only pauses repayment of the principal.

Ways to Qualify for Deferment or Forbearance

  • Unemployment
  • If you are facing a major economic hardship
  • Or suffer from a significant illness

A deferment or forbearance can also be granted to those with an upcoming service or learning opportunity, such as:

  • Participating in National Service
  • Attending a medical residency
  • Active Duty Military Service
  • Or if you are enrolled in college or career school

Ways to Qualify for Student Loan Forgiveness

Borrowers in this category should also be aware of the Public Service Student Loan Forgiveness program. This repayment program forgives Federal student loan debt after 120 consecutive, on-time payments, for borrowers working full-time for qualified public service employers.

Both deferment and forbearance will require some sort of application process with your lender. Student loan consolidation might be another option if you do not qualify for deferment or forbearance and need help with repayment.

If you are struggling with student loan debt repayment options, ACCC can help sort out the confusion.
