Interest payments on student loans

If you are performing conscript service, alternative non-military service or voluntary military service for women, Kela can provide conscript's allowance towards the interest payments on your student loans if they are due while you are in service or during the final month of service. This requires that you have not received financial aid in the academic term in which the interest is due, or in the previous academic term. If you have, the interest is capitalised (added to the loan principal).

Special assistance may be available towards the interest payments due on a family member's student loan.

Assistance with student loan interest can be paid on any banking day.
