There is almost $1.75 trillion — that’s trillion with a “T” — in outstanding student loan debt in the United States.
People of all ages and walks of life are impacted by student loan debt. In fact, 22% of that debt is owed by people age 50 and older.
Well, no matter your age, student loan forgiveness is now on the table. The Biden administration recently announced a program to forgive up to $20,000 in debt for borrowers.
In this podcast, we discuss who qualifies for the forgiveness program and what you need to do to claim your slice of the pie.
As usual, host Stacy Johnson is joined by financial journalist Miranda Marquit. Listening in and sometimes contributing is producer Aaron Freeman. Today’s special guest is Robert Farrington, a student loan expert and the founder of The College Investor.
