Student Loan Forgiveness Consolidation Deadline Bumped To April 2024

The Biden administration is giving borrowers another few months to apply to the student loan forgiveness credit under the Income-Driven Repayment Account Adjustment.

The majority of borrowers will receive the benefits of the account adjustment automatically, but those who hold FFEL-program federal student loans or those with multiple student loans that have a mixed repayment history may need to consolidate into the Direct loan program in order to maximize the benefits. The Direct loan consolidation deadline was supposed to be December 31 and is now being extended to April 30, 2024.
