Deferment

Taylor

Deferment temporarily postpones your student loan payments due to financial hardship. Direct Subsidized Loans, the subsidized portion of Direct Consolidation Loans, Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans, the subsidized portion of FFEL Consolidation Loans, and Federal Perkins Loans do not accrue interest while in a period of deferment. All other kinds of federal loans do accrue interest while in deferment.
