The Federal government today announced the long-awaited loan forgiveness decision. Most borrowers will have $10,000 forgiven earning less than $125,000. If you attended college with Pell grants, you may be entitled up to $20,000 in forgiveness. The Department of Education has income for most borrowers on file. If the Department of Education does not have your income, a process will be announced shortly to provide that information for eligibility by December 2022. More to come; in the meantime, you can sign up for updates at Department of Education Student Loan Updates.
