Biden Cancels More than $7 Billion in Student Debt for 160,000 People


The White House issued a statement Wednesday announcing that 160,000 people in the United States would have their student loans canceled, erasing a total of $7.7 billion in student debt for those people.

In June 2023, the Supreme Court issued a 6-3 decision to block Biden's plan to cancel $430 billion in student loan debt for almost 40 million people.

"Today, my Administration is canceling student debt for 160,000 more people, bringing the total number of Americans who have benefitted from our debt relief actions to 4.75 million," Biden said in the statement. "Each of those borrowers has received an average of over $35,000 in debt cancellation."

Biden explained that the 160,000 people who were having their student debt forgiven were people working as teachers, nurses, or even in law enforcement who had enrolled in the Biden administration's Saving on a Valuable Education (SAVE) Plan.

Biden's latest announcement comes after he announced in April that his administration would be canceling student debt for more than 270,000 people. Those who had their student debt canceled in April were borrowers who were enrolled in Biden's SAVE Plan.

As of March, more than 75 million people who had taken out student loans were reported to have enrolled in the SAVE Plan since the program began in August 2023.

The SAVE Plan is an income-driven repayment (IDR) plan that helps borrowers find the lowest monthly payments for their loans.
