The improved Deferred Payment Plan
Please note that major changes to the Deferred Payment Plan will be implemented in September, 2013 to provide better support to those who are paying back their student loan while in precarious financial circumstances. Full details about the program enhancement will be available on our Web site. In particular, if you qualify for the Plan’s new terms, you could take advantage of a relief measure and begin to repay your student loan in accordance with your means in spite of your financial difficulties.
When you choose the Deferred Payment Plan in the Repayment section of our Web site, you will be invited to use the monthly payment simulator. If you believe that you qualify for the Plan after going through the simulation process, you will be able to immediately fill out an application in the On-Line Access to Your File! tab.

Have you received the documents you require to file your 2012 income tax return?
Aide financière aux études recently sent out documents to students required to file a 2012 income tax return (e.g. Relevé 1 or T4A tax slip, letter certifying a payment to Aide financière aux études). If you have not received any documents it means your file did not contain a loan to bursary conversion, loan remission, repayment of bursary overpayment or interest paid on your student loan during 2012.
It is always possible however that a document required for your 2012 income tax return was in fact produced but not received by you. If this is the case, you can see whether a duplicate exists in the On-Line Access to Your File! Tax duplicates tab. You can print a copy of the duplicate and include it in your income tax return instead of the original.
