There are options to postpone making payments, such as deferring student loans if you're
jobless, in school at least half-time, taking a parental leave from work or you're in the armed
services or Peace Corps.  In a deferrment, the payments stop and the federal government
pays the interest on subsidized loans but interest continues to accrue on unsubsidized loans.

You may be able to request forbearance is you can't qualify for a deferment but interest
does build while in forebearance even though payments aren't required.


Website: http://loanconsolidation.ed.gov
Income-based repayment is available for all federal loans, not just direct loans.  Not every
lender offers it so borrowers who want it and know their lender doesn't offer it can consolidate
into the Direct Loan Program to get it.
