Military Member in the Reserves, Student loan forgiveness and lender credit freeze at a 6% interest rate

The Answer

Dear Kolby,

The interest rate freeze and other financial benefits are available for “active duty” members under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (formerly called the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act). It’s not clear from your question if you currently on active duty.
