Congressional Staffers & Family – Student Loans

Many emails circulate about members of congress, their staffers and their families do not have to pay back student loans.

FALSE

Some folks confuse the use of Title 2, Chapter 4, Section 60c-6 as doing such.

The Chief Administrative Officer shall establish a program under which an employing office of the House of Representatives may agree to repay (by direct payment on behalf of the employee) any student loan previously taken out by an employee of the office. For purposes of this section, Member of the House of Representatives (including a Delegate or Resident Commissioner to the Congress) shall not be considered to be an employee of the House of Representatives.
