New Student Loan Forgiveness. Are you Qualified?

The Supreme Court rejected President Biden’s plan to cancel up to $400 billion in student debt, so the government now targets high-loan-balance debtors and low-quality school graduates.

To clarify “financial hardship,” the U.S. Department of Education is holding a rulemaking conference. While qualifying requirements are unknown, bankruptcy signs are being evaluated. Bankruptcy applicants for student debt discharge must show an inability to sustain a basic level of living, no expected financial recovery, and a history of legitimate loan repayment.

Pell Grant receipt, health insurance subsidies, and debt-to-income ratios are being examined to find qualified borrowers. Financial issues like high medical bills are hard to capture using administrative records alone.

As the government refines its relief efforts, student loan holders are hopeful. Millions struggling financially have hope in targeted support based on true financial need.
