On Aug. 24, President Biden announced a student loan relief plan. While we won’t know all the details until the regulations are issued, we wanted to share a few highlights from the announcement. The plan covers loans distributed prior to July 1, 2022. The plan provides loan forgiveness of up to $10,000 or up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients. You are eligible if your annual income is below $125,000 for individuals and $250,000 for married couples/heads of households.
