Rubio, Cotton, Colleagues Request Answers Regarding Student Loan “Refunds” For Federal Employees

Oct 12, 2022 | Press Releases

According to the U.S. Department of Education, federal student loan borrowers will receive refunds for any payments made since March 13, 2020 because of the government’s pause on payments and interest accrual, even if another party made the payment for the borrower. This could entail federal employees being “refunded” thousands of dollars for payments the government made on their behalf.  

 
U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona demanding clarity on the issue.

  • “As you know, the federal government already offers generous repayment programs to its employees, which continued during the pandemic. Reports suggest roughly 2,000 Capitol Hill staffers and 10,400 executive branch employees benefit from these generous repayment plans.”
  • “Your current guidance raises the troubling possibility that over 12,000 federal employees who benefit from these taxpayer funded repayment programs could receive direct checks to ‘reimburse’ them for loan repayments already made by taxpayers.”
