How would student-loan forgiveness affect you?
About 43 million people owe $1.7 trillion in student debt across the country.
On Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced a plan “to forgive up to $20,000 of federal student loan debt for Pell Grant recipients, and up to $10,000 for other qualifying borrowers,” according to an NPR report. A White House official said that means about 20 million people will have their student debt fully canceled.
The pause on student loan repayments also was extended through Dec. 31.
