San Diego, CA, November 29, 2021 --(PR.com)-- The College Investor recently surveyed 1,200 student loan borrowers to see how financially ready they are to resume payments in February 2022 when the COVID-19 student loan forbearance expires.

Key Findings:

- 71% of borrowers surveyed feel financially ready to resume making their student loan payments in February 2022. Only 29% said they did not feel financially ready to start making payments on their student loans.

- Only 65% of borrowers know what their student loan payment is going to be when it resumes.

- 84% of student loan borrowers worry about their student loan payment, with 50% worrying about their loans "often."

The College Investor Editor-in-Chief, Robert Farrington, believes that while borrowers are ready to resume payments, lack of clear communication from the Department of Education around re-starting payments is making borrowers worry. “There needs to be a cohesive media plan with mass marketing and communication, and a focus on connection with all student loan borrowers.”
