I have student debt, can I still get all of the Child Tax Credit?

As of now, yes. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Education has stopped taking any payments from other federal agencies to cover outstanding student debt. The Department has said that this policy will be in place through 2022. That said, this policy is not permanent, and it's possible it could expire. You should file soon to ensure that your refund is issued before student debt payments resume.
