Student loan deferment for cancer patients
The U.S Education Department is now accepting applications for loan deferrals from people who are undergoing cancer therapies. The news was announced a few weeks ago and the form for the application can be found here.
Eligible people must submit a letter from their doctor outlining specifics of cancer and treatment. Deferral will be for one year unless a follow up is received from a physician.
If you or a loved one are dealing with cancer treatments, we may have programs to help you through this time. Learn more.
