The Urgent Reality of Student Loan Payments for Homeowners
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a tremendous burden on many families, and the federal government has responded by pausing student loan payments to offer temporary relief. For homeowners, however, the looming restart of these payments might bring unforeseen financial pressure. Let’s explore this urgent matter and the options available to you.
Understanding the Student Loan Pause
- Implemented in March 2020: As part of the CARES Act, federal student loan payments were paused to help borrowers.
- End of the pause: Payments are set to resume on September 1, 2023, with due payments starting in October 2023.
- Possible financial pressure: For homeowners, this sudden increase in expenses could strain the family budget.
Avoid the Traps – A Stark Warning
In your quest to find a solution, you might encounter companies promoting private loan consolidation programs. Be cautious! These may rob you of federal protection programs and can have devastating effects, such as:
- Losing eligibility for income-based payments
- Missing out on forgiveness programs
- Being stuck with high-interest private loans
