Understanding Student Loan Debt Relief

Over 40 million U.S. borrowers are eligible for debt relief through the recent Biden-Harris Administration’s Plan for Student Debt Relief. In this session, we’ll break down the three components of the Debt Relief plan and explain how they may affect your student loans. We’ll also share information on how to determine if you are eligible for loan forgiveness, how to find your loan balance and servicer, and how to create a strategy for loan repayment.

This session is offered by Anna Zimmerman, Financial Wellness Manager at the UMKC Financial Wellness Center.
