Biden to Forgive Student Loans in August 2022?

  Alright folks I’m back with another student loan update! According to CNBC, Biden is set to make a decision on student loan forgiveness by the end of August 2022. Now while I’m not entirely sold that this is actually happening, there are several things for you to be aware of. First things first there is still no clear information on how much will be forgiven. While Biden did discuss student loan forgiveness of $10K during his campaign trail other sources have reported higher amounts of 50K. Of course, none of this is set in stone and we are all waiting to hear something. This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video on “Biden to Forgive Student Loans in August?” I am looking at the camera suspiciously while seated in my office. The background is red. There may also be income restrictions of who may qualify for student loan forgiveness. Single folks may have a threshold of 125K-150K while those who are married may be between 250K-300K. There is also some talk surrounding what typ

President Biden Extends Student Loan Repayment Again!

 

President Biden has extended student loan repayment again. In case you had forgotten, interest and payments were set to resume on September 30, 2021 but now this has been changed to January 31, 2022. Another extension leaves me to believe that these loans aren’t going anywhere. I mean think about it why wouldn’t Biden just cancel them at the end of September? Why does there need to be another extension? In case you can’t tell I have lost all hope in student loan forgiveness. I actually started paying on my student loans in April 2021 and my balance has decreased by about half! I had five student loans through FedLoan Servicing and I am on number four of five. My ultimate goal is to have them paid off by the end of this year and I am working incredibly hard to meet this goal.

What does this whole extension mean for student loan forgiveness? Are you still keeping the faith alive? Do you have plans to tackle your student loan debt? For me personally I am tired of giving my hard-earned money to someone else and I want to get rid of this debt so I can reach my financial dreams. It seems like I might be the only one who feels this way at the moment! Why do you think so many others have just given up on even attempting to pay their student loan debt? While I understand some people’s balances are astronomical, anything can be accomplished with effort.

You may not know this but FedLoan Servicing will actually stop servicing student loans at the end of their contract. While I’m not quite sure what all this may entail I do know that typically with new companies come new policies and procedures and I want my loans to be long gone before that happens!  The student loan debt crisis seems to be never ending for us millennials and many people have truly given up. While my faith has dwindled in student loan forgiveness my mindset has broadened in my abilities to pay off debt and to pay it off quickly. Are you interested in learning how I’ve been tackling my student loans? Drop down in the comments and let me know if you want to create a plan to expand your own financial goals I’d love to tell you how I plan to get there!

You will know that your receiving a refund if there’s a negative balance on your account. It’s the one time in history where you actually want to see a negative balance!  Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video where I am in my office with a surprised look on my face.  This semester I paid $241 in fees and I received a $500 grant for individuals who work at community colleges. Oh yeah  did I mention I work at a community college too part time as a tutor? Anyhoo, since I had already paid off my student account I received the $500 as a refund. If you’ve been watching my YouTube videos or reading my blogs then you already know this money is going to debt.  Figure 2: This is a photo of three $100 bills and three $50 bills. With refunds posting to accounts daily you want to make sure that you are constantly c

Fall 2021 HEERF & CARES Act Funding is Here!! (FREE Money for College Students!!)💵🤑💰

  A few days ago, I was surfing on my universities homepage and I noticed that there was a message at the top regarding summer II HEERF and CARES Act funding. Since I was enrolled in both summer semesters, I decided to send an email to the person listed as the contact to ask if I could receive more CARES Act funding for the fall semester. Since I had been enrolled in the first part of the summer and had already received funding I was not eligible but I was told that another round of CARES Act funding would be given in the fall! In case you did not know HEERF funding is the Higher Education Emergency Relief Act that was enacted for college students due to the pandemic. HEERF provides billions of support in education through CARES Act funding for enrolled students. Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my YouTube video on “Fall 2021 HEERF & CARES Act Funding is Here” where I am wearing a black shirt with a surprised look on my face. Now while I am not sure on how much you will receive thi
