Biden’s federal student loan debt relief plan is to cancel as much as $10,000 in federal student loan debt for people earning less than $125,000 a year, or less than $250,000 for married couples. Those who received Pell Grants, federal aid for lower-income students, could see up to $20,000 forgiven. Most people with federal student loans are below the income threshold and would qualify for Biden’s plan. Undergraduate loans, graduate loans and Parent Plus loans held by the Education Department are all eligible for cancellation. Borrowers employed by non-profit organizations, the military, or federal, state, tribal, or local government may be eligible to have all of their student loan debt forgiven through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.
Biden officially launched the application Monday, October 17th, after the Education Department opened the form over the weekend as part of a beta test, hoping to find and remedy any glitches on the site. Eight million people have applied to date, the president said. He estimates that the White House has received some 10,000 letters from borrowers praising one of his signature economic policies.
