At the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), we understand the challenges and sacrifices Pennsylvania families make to afford higher education.

On September 30, 2020, the relief benefits applied to the accounts of borrowers with PHEAA-owned student loans expired. This means, if you were required to make payments, they will resume and your temporary interest rate of 0% will return to the interest rate on your loan as of March 13, 2020.
