StudentAid.gov/coronavirus has information about topics such as the 0% interest period, the administrative forbearance (payment pause), and defaulted loans.
On January 20, 2021, President Biden directed the United States Department of Education to extend the pause on interest accrual and payments due on certain Student Loans owned by the Federal Government. The President’s directive is to remain in place at least through September 30, 2021. Your loans owned by MOHELA, which you received under the former Federal Family Education Loan Program, do not qualify for this pause in interest accrual; however, new benefits have been extended that will allow for you to stop payments due. We are committed to assisting you with your student loan needs and will continue to provide updates regarding the actions we are taking to help you.
