What to do before student loan payments resume

It’s been a crazy year. One piece of good news is that since the global pandemic broke out in March, your federal student loan payments have been paused.

However, on Jan. 1, 2021, the relief period for student loan payments is scheduled to end, which means your student loan payments will likely resume with the new year.

Take advantage of this time to make sure you’re on the right repayment plan for your federal student loans. That way, you can rest easier knowing you’re on the best path forward once payments resume.

We know. This is easier said than done. There are many different repayment plans and options that can help reduce your monthly student loan payments, but they’re often hard to digest. And making sure you’re on the path to Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) is no easy task. All this means spending time to figure things out, which we know you’re short on these days.

But here’s even more good news: In appreciation for all your hard work during COVID-19, current educators get complimentary access to our Student Loans Solutions program for the 2020-21 academic year.

Through this program, we can help you find out if you qualify for federal loan forgiveness, determine your best payment plan and apply for PSLF.

Sign up for your complimentary Student Loan Solutions account today. With this account, you’ll be able to access online tools and loan coaches that are designed to help make sure you’re on the best path for you before student loan payments resume!
