Originally airing on Marketplace on July 2, 2023, Samantha Fields discusses the administrations plan to transition borrowers back into student loan repayment with Abby Shafroth.

“Interest will be charged to borrowers accounts and … bills will be sent out. But if borrowers miss their payments, or there’s confusion, they pay the wrong amount … their credit reporting won’t be impacted, they won’t be put into delinquent or default status, and they won’t face late fees or collection costs or anything like that, as a result.”

Abby Shafroth, co-director of advocacy at the National Consumer Law Center
