Military Personnel Student Loan Benefits and Resources
Sallie Mae appreciates the servicemen and servicewomen who safeguard our freedom. We want to make it as easy as possible to get the information that you, your spouse, family member, or other authorized representative may need to service and manage your federal and private student loans while you’re on active duty.
Do you know that, as a member of the military, you may qualify for special benefits? We’ve compiled a list of student loan benefits for borrowers in the military, including the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA).
Manage your account
Are you preparing for active duty or deployment, or want to provide information for the family member in charge of your student loan while you’re deployed? Do you need to update your address, set up online access, or request e-delivery? We’ll make it easy.

Forms for service members
As a member of the military, you appreciate the importance of having the right forms when you need them. Sallie Mae has put all the forms you need for managing your Sallie Mae-serviced private student loans in one place. These forms allow you to set up automatic debit, authorize release of information to a third party, and more.
Sallie Mae has created a special section of answers to frequently asked questions that military personnel might have about private student loans. It includes information on designating power of attorney, managing your credit, and repaying your student loans.
