Student Loan Forgiveness Plan

  • On August 24, 2022, President Biden announced $10,000 of debt relief per federal student loan borrower for those who did not attend college on Pell Grants. He announced $20,000 for those who did attend college on Pell Grants.
  • The loan forgiveness is for individuals making under $125,000 a year and families making under $250,000 a year. Loans must have been taken out by June 30, 2022.
  • If you’re a current borrower and a dependent student, you will be eligible for relief based on your parents’ income rather than your own.
  • Borrowers for whom the Department of Education does not have accurate income information (the majority of borrowers) will need to apply for loan forgiveness. The application should be available by early October. It will take four to six weeks for the forgiveness to appear in a borrower's loan profile, so the government recommends borrowers apply before November 15 to ensure the relief is applied by the time payments resume in January 2023. Sign up at studentaid.gov to be notified when the application opens.
  • Borrowers will be able to apply for student loan forgiveness through December 31, 2023.
  • President Biden also extended the pause on student loan repayments that was set to expire on August 31. Payments will begin again in January 2023.
  • Something getting less attention than it should: If you made student loan payments during the pandemic pause, you can now receive a refund. Simply contact your loan servicer to begin the refund process.
  • Certain states will be taxing your forgiven loan, be sure to let your accountant know that you had a forgiven loan
