October is the month that student loan payments resume — so why aren’t some paying now?
The long-anticipated restart of federal student loan payments officially kicks off in October. But oddly enough, there are plenty of quirks along the way where some borrowers aren’t stuck paying right now. Some actually are seeing due dates in November, December and even January.
Nothing, it would seem, is cookie-cutter about student loans these days.
You might talk with a friend or family member who isn’t paying just yet. Even so, you’d need to make sure you know exactly when your bill must be paid and not assume that a later due date applies to you.
