But now, as in 2022 when he did a press conference alone. He got to ask about the questions on students’ loans. He ignored the question completely and did not answer that. People are saying that maybe he had to cancel his student loan debt that he had passed earlier. The things that he promised people on can you guess now where are these promises stands.

People who are eligible for the loan

is there is an eligibility criterion for the students who want to get a loan? here we are going to be discussing who are those people who can qualify and who are eligible that they can put their names in the lists of student’s loan debt. here we have a list of who are the people who are eligible to get asked for a loan.

  • The ones who are disabled and will never be get recovered:

In the past year, the number of borrowers and needy people who need loans are 41000 people so joe Biden offers $1.3 billion for the people who are disabled and need loans in order to help themselves and fulfill their education expenses.

  • PR loan services:

The total number of borrowers who apply for this loan every year is almost 70000 and the budget the US government has given them was about $5 billion. the students who do some sort of government job or something like a nurse or a driver. They can apply for this kind of loan.

  • Borrower defense repayments:

The borrowers for this loan are approximately 92000 and the total budget for this loan is $1.5 billion

  • Closed school discharge:

The borrower’s students are 115000 and the total budget is $.56 billion. Here is the complete list we have of the people who are eligible in order to get those loan debts.


Joe Biden promised to give student loan debt. this is what he has done yet

When President-Joe Biden has been asked about whether he would pass the student loan cancellation figured into his economic recovery plan, he declared that “It should be done immediately.  holding people up,” he said on 16th of November 2020. “They’re in real trouble. They’re having to make choices between paying their student loan and paying the rent. On the campaign trail, Biden had pledged to cancel at least $10,000 of student debt per person. One year later, while Biden has provided hundreds of thousands of borrowers with debt relief, that $10,000 promise remains unfulfilled. Here’s a look at why — and what he has done.


Reforming student-loan programs

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program is supposed to forgive student debt for public service workers after ten years of qualifying monthly payments, but it is notoriously flawed and rejected 98% of applications leading up to Biden’s presidency. Biden promised to fix the program, and those fixes are currently in the works. Biden’s regulatory agenda, released in June, included plans to reform PSLF, along with amending the “borrower defense to repayment,” which forgives loans for students who were defrauded by for-profit schools.


And since then, Joe Biden’s Education Department has acted on those plans. In October, the department announced reforms to PSLF, one of which included a limited-time waiver through October 31, 2022, that will allow borrowers to count payments from any federal-loan programs or repayment plans toward loan forgiveness through PSLF, including programs and plans that were not previously eligible. Another temporary reform pertains to the income-driven repayment plans, which allow borrowers to pay back their debt based on family income. The Federal Student Aid office said borrowers on those plans can self-report their incomes through July 31, easing the paperwork process. Do you have a story about student debt cancellation?

More targeted relief

“The Biden administration has a real track record now that we can look to and know how it thinks about awarding student loan relief,” Andrew Pentis, a certified student loan counselor with Student Loan Hero, previously told  

It’s been a track record of targeted relief to specific borrowers—not the mass forgiveness proposals that many progressives have called for.”

Shermer agrees: “Targeted relief seems more likely given the actions of the Education Department as well as official statements since Biden’s swearing-in.” She adds that cancellation seems likely only for borrowers who attended now-defunct schools and public service workers; Biden has announced forgiveness for both.

We could perhaps see forgiveness for the following groups: borrowers in default and low-income borrowers; teachers and parents; and military and borrowers who “really cannot pay back those student loans.”

Shermer argues, though, that there needs to be a more concerted effort to help “the many Americans who were shown to be essential during the pandemic, even if they were technically working in the private sector. They also need their debts canceled—not forgiven—because no one did anything wrong by pursuing the education that betters the entire country’s.
