If you are finding it hard to repay your HELP debt, you can apply to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for support.
The ATO may allow you to:
- enter a repayment plan, or
- defer your repayments.
There is a two-year time limit to apply for a deferment of compulsory HELP repayments.
Visit the ATO's website or call them on 13 28 61 for more information.
