FYI - just did my annual employee recertification for PSLF and it properly counted the months covered by the CARES Act. Sitting at 44 qualifying payments! (lol not even halfway there but at least all months have been properly counted since I started repayment).

No annual income recertification necessary this year either. Just got message that all annual recerts are extended for at least a year.

When I last logged on the website said recertification had been deferred till Dec 31. (Not sure if that’s the same as what Johannes saw or if they extended it again.)

Does everyone else interpret this to mean we just don't need to recertify this year and our payments next year will be the same as this year?

Yes, that’s my understanding. My recertification is usually in the spring and they’d sent me the reminder to recertify before the first extension, and then nothing more.

FYI - y'all should call you servicers to see if the extension applies to you. My income based repayment anniversary is on January 1, so I don't qualify. The date is not when your recertification is due, but the anniversary of when you officially entered income based repayment is the reference date for whether the extension applies. My recertification deadline is 11/27, but that apparently isn't the date that matters.
