Student Loan Relief for those with Cancer

From the U.S. Department of Education

Alert! The Department of Education Appropriations Act, 2019 includes a provision that allows individuals diagnosed with cancer to have their federal student loans placed in a deferment status while they undergo cancer treatment. The U.S. Department of Education is assessing the newly enacted law and will explain the new deferment conditions to customers on this page as soon as more details are available. We encourage you to check back periodically. If you need assistance in the meantime, contact your federal loan servicer or you can reach our student loan counselor at 800-895-4795
