The 2018 Student Loan Sustainability Bill introduced a combined HELP loan limit that will apply from 1 January 2020.
The combined HELP loan limit will replace the FEE-HELP limit and will include HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP.
Existing FEE-HELP, VET FEE-HELP or VET Student Loans you have already borrowed before 2020 will be carried over. Only new HECS-HELP borrowing will count towards a person's HELP limit
From the 2019-2020 income year, repayments made towards HELP loans will top up your HELP balance.
Any compulsory or voluntary repayments can be re-borrowed in the future, up to the then current HELP loan limit.
