Student Loan Debt Relief
Federal Student Aid and the Biden-Harris Administration have announced federal loan forgiveness plans of up to $20,000 for prior Pell Grant recipients and up to $10,000 for all other federal loan borrowers. To be eligible, the annual income of borrowers must be below $125,000 (individuals) and $250,000 (married couples/heads of households). Borrowers can view their loan balances and check their Pell Grant status by logging into their Federal Student Aid account online at studentaid.gov. The Department will be announcing further details on how borrowers can claim this relief in the weeks ahead.
