Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan goes before the Supreme Court

Whatever happens with this case, Betsy Mayotte at the nonprofit Institute of Student Loan Advisors likes to remind people who are anxious about their debt that “there are a multitude of lower payment options available on federal student loans.”

Mayotte said all the focus on broad student loan relief has overshadowed a lot of other major changes the administration has made to the student loan program.

“That has really taken the pressure off some of the most vulnerable borrowers — like totally and permanently disabled students that were defrauded by their schools — borrowers pursuing Public Service Loan Forgiveness…” she said.

Some of those changes, Mayotte said, may ultimately provide even more relief for people than the $10,000 to $20,000 of forgiveness currently before the Supreme Court.
