   Student Loan Deferment Letter

{Phone #}


Dear {loan servicer/agency}:

I am writing to request deferment of my {Perkins/Stafford/etc.} student loan.

A temporary break in payments is needed and merited due to my inability to find full-time work. I have not rejected any offers of work, and I have been diligently seeking employment for more than six months. I am also registered with a local employment agency.

I have attached documents detailing my income and expenses.

While I anticipate finding work sooner than later, I would like to request the maximum {one/three} year deferment.

Thank you for considering this unemployment deferment request.
