Student Loan Borrowers on 12-Month “On Ramp” Repayment

To address the issue on missed payments when the repayment starts, the Biden administration will be helping out student loan borrowers.

The U.S. Department of Education will start the 12-month “on ramp” to repayment from Oct. 1, 2023, to Sept. 30, 2024 to help student loan borrowers avoid other consequences if they miss their first payment.

During the Pandemic, the federal loan bills had been paused 8th times by the Trump Administration. With the latest announcement from President Biden, the payment for the student loan will resume in the last week of August.

However, if the borrower won’t be able to make payments in the succeeding months, the interest will continue to be added on the student debt.
