NCLC’s Student Loan Borrower Assistance Project posted a new self-help packet this week. The unemployment deferment packet helps borrowers figure out whether they are eligible for this deferment and if so, how to apply. Only federal student loan borrowers with loans that are not in default may qualify.
The English version is now available and the Spanish version will be posted soon.
Borrowers with private student loans should check with their loan holders to ask about similar options for private loans. We also have information on the site to help borrowers figure out what type of loan they have.
