New York Attorney General Letitia James and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Friday announced the state has again renewed an order to halt the collection of medical and student debt owed to New York that was specifically referred to the office of the attorney general (OAG) for collection for an additional 30-day period.

In response to continuing financial impairments resulting from the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the OAG will renew the last two orders this coming Monday, May 18, through Tuesday, June 16. After this 30-day period, the OAG will reassess the needs of state residents for another possible extension.

Additionally, the OAG will accept applications for suspension of all other types of debt owed to the state of New York and referred to the OAG for collection. To read more, click here.
