In December 2021 the United States Department of Education announced that the COVID-19 Emergency relief related to federal student loans would end on May 1, 2022. Those with eligible loans may have received a suspension of loan payments, 0% interest rate, and stopped collections on defaulted loans.

According to news providers like NPR, the Department of Education is taking a new look at the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, and some people who were previously denied loan forgiveness are now having their loans forgiven.
The qualified student loan interest you pay may be deductible on your personal tax return as well.
