Department of Education – Federal Student Loan Relief

Agency / Department: Department of Education

Resource: Federal Student Loan Relief

Details: COVID-related guidance: If you’re having trouble making payments, contact your loan servicer as soon as possible. If you have a federal Perkins Loan, contact your school. You can easily avoid the consequences of delinquency or default by staying in touch with your servicer or school.

Your servicer or school can provide information about deferment or forbearance options that allow you to temporarily stop making payments on your loans. You may also be able to change to a different repayment plan that would give you a lower monthly payment.

How to apply: Contact your loan servicer, or your school if you have a federal Perkins Loan.
