Perkins loans serviced by your school or a third party such as UNISA, UAS, or ECSI (not directly held by the Department of Education), are not eligible for the benefits of interest and payment stoppage at this time. However, you likely have deferment options available. For example, if you’ve recently lost your job, you may temporary postpone payments if you qualify for unemployment deferment. You will receive a 6-month post-deferment grace period beginning on the date you no longer qualify for the deferment. If you are experiencing financial hardship related to COVID-19, please review available deferment or forbearance forms to determine if any may apply to your situation.
To provide relief to student loan borrowers during the COVID-19 national emergency, federal student loan borrowers are automatically being placed in an administrative forbearance, which allows you to temporarily stop making your monthly loan payment. This suspension of payments will last until Sept. 30, 2020, but you can still make payments if you choose. Read the borrower Q&As below to learn more.
