Deferred Interest
Updated
January 19, 2023
Deferred interest occurs when interest payments on a loan are postponed for a set length of time. You will not pay any interest as long as your entire loan balance is paid off before the end of this period. If you do not pay off the loan debt before the grace period expires, interest charges will begin to accrue.
