Student loan payments start soon: Everything you need to know

The student loan payment pause is coming to an end on Friday, September 1.

This comes after the Supreme Court ruled back in June that President Biden did not have the authority to cancel student loan debt. The federal pause on payments then had 60 days to come to an end.

During the pause, payments weren’t required and interest didn’t accumulate for borrowers. Interest will begin accruing on Friday for the first time since March 2020, and payments will resume in October for borrowers across the country.

Florida Medicare for All Town Hall w/ Rep. Maxwell Frost

More than 2.5 million Floridians do not have any health insurance. In addition to this, between April and July of 2023, over 400,000 were disenrolled from Medicaid. Co-pays, deductibles, cumbersome pre-authorizations and other unnecessary barriers prevent Floridians from receiving the care they need. In addition, the status quo of U.S. healthcare is too expensive and inefficient.
It is past time to demand Medicare for All!
Medicare for All will cover all medically appropriate care including dental, vision, reproductive care, long-term care, prescription drugs and more, with no out-of-pocket costs.
Please join Congressman Maxwell Frost and a panel of statewide experts for an important state-wide virtual Medicare for All townhall.
We will discuss how Florida residents can support one another through this still ongoing healthcare crisis and ways that we can get involved locally to build support for Medicare for All, including how to pass city and county council resolutions.
