The White House has said that the Vice President, Joe Biden, will be the one to decide on the matter of student loans.
According to the White House, Biden will make a decision on student loan repayments in the coming weeks.
Vice President Biden is proposing extending the student loan freeze and forgiving additional debt before a pandemic-related payment suspension on August 31.
“She said Biden said he’ll decide by “end of August.””
She pointed out that Biden told reporters only last week that he plans to make a choice by “the end of August.”
It was announced in April that Vice President Joe Biden will extend the suspension on federal student loan payments and interest accrual until August.
Other White House officials have been silent when asked whether Vice President Joe Biden plans to take administrative action to cancel any student debts.
Adviser Brian Deese said on Tuesday that “the president talked to the timing on this subject,” adding that he didn’t have any new information to give on student loans.
An Education Department official said on Tuesday that the government is still evaluating whether to prolong its payment halt, but that students would be informed “personally” when the freeze ends.
Contractors have been instructed not to deliver billing bills after a story in the Wall Street Journal on Monday.
The Department of Education had advised corporations not to send out messages about restarting payments prior to Biden’s announcement of the final extension in April of this year.
