A Fresh Start for Federal Student Loan Borrowers in Default

The U.S. Department of Education announced an initiative—called “Fresh Start”—to help eligible borrowers in default. If your loans are eligible, you’ll temporarily regain several student aid benefits. You’ll also get the opportunity to get out of default and keep those benefits for the long term.

Fresh Start will continue through December 31, 2023 – one year after the COVID-19 payment pause ends.
