Student debt relief

On Aug. 24, Federal Student Aid and the Biden-Harris Administration announced loan forgiveness plans of up to $20,000 for prior Pell-Grant recipients and up to $10,000 for all other loan borrowers.

To be eligible, a borrower’s annual income must be below $125,000 (individuals) and $250,000 (married couples/head of households). If the U.S. Department of Education doesn’t have your income data (or if you don’t know if the U.S. Department of Education has your income data) the administration will launch a simple application in the coming weeks.

Borrowers can view their loan balances and check their Pell Grant status by logging into their Federal Student Aid account.

See The Biden-Harris Administration's Student Debt Relief Plan Explained for the most up-to-date information.

Sign up at the Department of Education?if you would like to be notified by the U.S. Department of Education when the application is open.
