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. We will notify borrowers before payments restart. Visit Mohela.com/covid19 or StudentAid.gov/coronavirus for updates.
Keep In Mind:
MOHELA's systems will reflect August 31, 2023 as the end of the payment pause however this date may change if the U.S. Department of Education is permitted to implement the debt relief program or the litigation is resolved before June 30, 2023.
Student Loan Debt Relief is Blocked
Courts have issued orders blocking student debt relief. The Biden-Harris Administration is seeking to overturn those orders. For the latest information regarding the status of student debt relief, visit StudentAid.gov.
Public Service Loan Forgiveness
As of July 2022, MOHELA became the student loan servicer for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF). Borrowers pursuing PSLF will be transferred to MOHELA upon the approval of their submitted PSLF form. Check the status of your PSLF form.
Have you recently received notification that your loans will be transferring to MOHELA? Get more information about the transfer. We appreciate your patience during this transition period.
If you submitted a PSLF form or used the PSLF Help Tool on or before Oct. 31, 2022, to generate a PSLF form to take advantage of the PSLF Limited Waiver, MOHELA will continue to process these forms under the PSLF Limited Waiver rules. Get information about the PSLF Limited Waiver.
Income-Driven Repayment Account Adjustment
In April 2022, the U.S. Department of Education announced several updates that will bring borrowers closer to forgiveness under income-driven repayment (IDR) plans. Borrowers who have reached the required number of payments for IDR forgiveness will begin to see their loans forgiven in spring 2023.
All other borrowers will see their accounts update in summer 2023. If you have Perkins loans or commercially held FFELP loans, you can only get the full benefits of the one-time account adjustment if you consolidate by May 1, 2023.
