Congress passed the Cares Act — the $2.2 trillion stimulus package — in March 2020 to grant more than 40 million federal student loan borrowers substantial student loan relief in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. This included, among other benefits, no requirement to make federal student loan payments and setting federal student loan interest rates at 0% temporarily. While this student loan relief only was authorized to last six months, President Donald Trump extended the student loan relief twice through executive action. Similarly, Biden extended this temporary student loan forbearance twice through January 31, 2022. While Biden could change his mind, it’s unlikely at this point, having made the definitive announcement that there will be no further extensions. There has been no public indication from the Biden administration that an extension is even an option for consideration.
