November 21, 2022 Student Loan Forgiveness Update

What’s Happening to Student Loan Forgiveness?
As you may have read in the news, a federal judge has blocked the White House’s student loan forgiveness program. Since then, the Department of Education has taken down the student loan relief application from its website. However, many lawmakers and advocates alike are still pushing for student loan forgiveness in some way.

What Should I Know?
There’s talk of potentially extending the current student loan payment pause, but nothing is set in stone. And as of the writing of this update, federal student loan payments are set to resume in January 2023. Keep in mind that this also means the interest on these loans will start accruing (the interest rate for federal student loans is currently 0%). In the meantime, we’ll be watching the news closely to see what happens next with student loan forgiveness.
