According to USA Today, “If you earn less than $125,000 annually, he said, you’re eligible to receive cancellation of up to $10,000 in federal student loans. If you received a Pell Grant, you can get up to $20,000 forgiven. If you’re not eligible for any student debt forgiveness, your pause on repayments continues to be paused until year-end. The Department of Education is also working on a proposal introducing a new repayment plan to ease the burden on borrowers.”
