Can I defer payments for private student loans? I have 2 past due student loans is it possible.




Cuomo has entered into an agreement with student loan servicers recently. As per the agreement, student loan collection will be deferred up to 90 days. Late fees will be waived off and negative information won't be reported to credit reports. Loan servicers have also agreed to stop lawsuits and offer payment plans to borrowers.

Yes, you can defer the payment up to 9 days. However, try to manage your money responsively during this time.

In the CARES Act, there are good news for the peeps who have taken out student loans. The Department of Education announced that you would be able to pause your payments for at least 60 days if you have requested for the forbearance. That means, payments for your student loans will be automatically suspended for 6 months. And moreover, no interest will accrue during this time.
