There are different reasons that could qualify you for deferment or forbearance. To learn more about eligibility and an explanation for each reason, look it up here in the resource center. When you postpone or defer payment, interest may continue to accrue on the loan, and this calculator will help to estimate that impact and show postponing a payment vs. other repayment changes. Use the drop down to select a reason; then click the Calculate button. Remember, contacting the servicer is required to make these types of changes.
