Website: https://www.ed.gov
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.  

Website: https://studentaid.gov/app/launchConsolidation.action
What is Loan Consolidation?
If you have multiple student loans you may be able to combine them into one loan with a fixed 
interest rate based on the average of the interest rates on the loans being consolidated. Learn 
more about loan consolidation.
&
A Direct Consolidation Loan allows you to consolidate multiple federal education loans into one 
loan at no cost to you. Through your completion of the free Federal Direct Consolidation Loan 
Application and Promissory Note, you will confirm the loans that you want to consolidate and 
agree to repay the new Direct Consolidation Loan. Once the consolidation is complete, you will 
have a single monthly payment on the new Direct Consolidation Loan instead of multiple monthly
 payments on the loans you consolidated.

Website: www.disabilitydischarge.com
If you are totally and permanently disabled, you may qualify for a total and permanent disability 
(TPD) discharge of your federal student loans or TEACH Grant service obligation. If you receive 
a TPD discharge, you will no longer be required to repay your loans or complete your TEACH 
Grant service obligation.
