When the pandemic officially began (sometime in March?) there was a halt to student loan payment obligations. However, I'm in a situation where my job is stable, my income is stable (for now) and I've been trying to kill my student loan monster. Should I take advantage of the stopping interest accumulation on my student loan and bulk up my payments for the next six months, or use that money to bulk up my savings account for an emergency?

If it were me, I'd build up my savings. When you reach an amount you find satisfactory, then move to paying down debt. And I say this having my own student debt, which I HATE. But all that's going on reinforced my belief that savings are very important.
