What the restart of student loan payments could mean for the economy 🎓
Some borrowers will get squeezed, but the economy could skate by 🤷🏻♂️
On March 13, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government paused student loan payments and brought the interest rate on that debt to 0%.
It was an effort to provide financial relief to households during tough times while also bolstering the economy through consumer spending.
On September 1, 2023, student loan interest will reset, and payments will resume in October.
