The Department of Education is inviting borrowers to complete a beta version of the online student loan debt relief application to help refine their processes ahead of the official form launch.
It’s estimated that 42 million borrowers qualify for the student loan debt relief program, and most will have to file an application. The question is, should you apply now or wait for the official launch? Here are some things to consider:
FSA continues to issue warnings encouraging you to protect yourself from student loan scams. According to FSA, borrowers have reported receiving calls, emails, letters, and/or texts offering student loan debt relief or warning them that student loan forgiveness programs would end soon. If you are unsure an offer is legitimate, contact your servicer to verify.
In addition to your loan servicer, Student Connections provides FREE student loan support services on behalf of colleges and universities. A Borrower Advocate can help you find your loan information and answer your questions.
We have more than 60 years of experience counseling student loan borrowers. Our primary goal is helping you receive the debt relief you are entitled to and successfully repay any remaining balance.
