President Joe Biden and lawmaker Kevin McCarthy have a deal on how to help the debt ceiling. One of the solutions to recover the country’s economy is to resume the student federal loan payment, which was postponed in 2019 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Starting September 1, 2023, 43 million Americans will start paying their federal loan. The federal loan payment would result in boosting the nation’s economy.
The resuming of student federal loan payments would lead to a $40 billion decrease in household disposable income.
