Federal Student Loan Debt Relief

The U.S. Department of Education has announced that it will provide up to $20,000 in debt relief to Pell Grant recipients with loans held by the Department of Education and up to $10,000 in debt relief to non-Pell Grant recipients. Borrowers may view federal student loan balances, loan servicer information, and Pell Grant status history by logging into their Federal Student Aid account at studentaid.gov. Review the Federal Student Aid debt relief announcement for details.
