President Biden’s SAVE plan brings relief to millions of struggling student loan borrowers.
“The SAVE plan is an income-driven repayment (IDR) plan that calculates payments based on a borrower’s income and family size – not their loan balance – and forgives remaining balances after a certain number of years. The SAVE plan will cut many borrowers’ monthly payments to zero, will save other borrowers around $1,000 per year, will prevent balances from growing because of unpaid interest, and will get more borrowers closer to forgiveness faster. The SAVE plan builds on the actions the Biden-Harris Administration has already taken to support students and borrowers, including cancelling more than $116 billion in student loan debt for 3.4 million Americans.” – White HouseUnderstand how the SAVE PLAN will improve the lives of millions of student borrowers. We break down the plan with this infographic and audio guides in both English and Spanish.
Who is eligible and how the plan works
The SAVE plan is expected to be available to more than 20 million borrowers and is already in effect.“Borrowers will not have to make payments if they have an income that is 225 percent of the federal poverty guidelines or less — that is, if they make less than $32,800 for individuals and $67,500 for a family of four. That covers more than a million borrowers, as estimated by the Biden administration, and payments will be suspended on an indefinite basis. Previously, income was only protected at 150 percent of the guidelines. People earning more than that amount will still see their monthly payments decrease by an average of $91 for individuals and $187 for a family of four as compared to before the pandemic payment freeze was instituted.” – VOX
