Ongoing litigation against Reliance Capital Ltd (RCL) may delay the ongoing debt resolution process initiated by the lenders.

The process of resolving the corporate insolvency of RCL under IBC commenced on 6th December 2021 following an application filed by the Reserve Bank of India before NCLT, Mumbai. The RBI has appointed Y Nageswara Rao, as a director of the company. Following this, Credit Suisse filed its claim with the RCL administrator under the CIRP process for an amount of approximately ₹1,074 crore.

The administrator rejected a majority of Credit Suisse’s claim amounting to approx. ₹660 crore and recognized a claim of only ₹414 crore on the grounds that said claim of ₹660 crore does not constitute a financial liability of RCL.

Subsequently, Credit Suisse challenged the administrator’s decision by filing a claim with NCLT, Mumbai.

Separately, Vistra ITCL India Limited, in its capacity as trustee of the NCD Debentures issued by Reliance Capital Limited, filed a commercial claim in the Bombay High Court in May 2020. Vistra challenged the validity and reliance of the pledge of the shares of Reliance General Insurance Company Limited created in favor of IDBI Trusteeship Services Limited on behalf of Credit Suisse and others.

“Given that Credit Suisse’s claim is secured by a pledge of the shares of RGICL, which is RCL’s most valuable asset, it appears that RCL’s entire resolution process could be tainted by the past litigation and regarding the Credit Suisse claim and subsequent pledge of Reliance General Insurance Company Limited (RGICL) shares, an industry source said.

Vistra also filed an interlocutory motion in the trade lawsuit seeking interim relief pending final settlement of the lawsuit. This case is still pending in the Bombay High Court.

Russia is set to default on its foreign debt for the first time since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, further alienating the country from the global financial system following sanctions imposed over its war in Ukraine..

The country faces a Sunday night deadline to meet a 30-day grace period on interest payments originally due on May 27. But it might take time to confirm a fault.

‘Although there is a possibility that some magic could happen’ and that Russia will get the money through financial institutions for bondholders despite sanctions, ‘no one is betting on that’ said Jay S. Auslander, a top sovereign debt lawyer at Wilk Auslander in New York. “The overwhelming probability is that they won’t be able to because no bank will move the money.”

Last month, the US Treasury Department terminated Russia’s ability to repay its billions in debt to international investors through US banks. In response, the Russian Finance Ministry said it would pay dollar-denominated debts in rubles. and offer “the possibility of subsequent conversion into the original currency”.

Russia calls any defect artificial because he has the money to pay his debts but says the sanctions have frozen his foreign currency reserves held overseas.

“There is money and there is also the will to pay,” Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said last month. “This situation, artificially created by a hostile country, will have no effect on the quality of life of Russians.”

Tim Ash, senior emerging markets sovereign analyst at BlueBay Asset Management, tweeted that the default “clearly isn’t” out of Russia’s control and that sanctions are preventing it from paying its debts because it invaded Europe. ‘Ukraine.

Here are the key things to know about a Russian default:

HOW MUCH OWS RUSSIA?

About $40 billion in foreign bonds, about half to foreigners. Prior to the start of the war, Russia had about $640 billion in foreign exchange and gold reserves, much of which was held overseas and is now frozen.

Russia has not defaulted on its international debts since the Bolshevik Revolution more than a century ago, when the Russian Empire collapsed and the Soviet Union was created. Russia defaulted on its domestic debts in the late 1990s, but was able to recover from this default with the help of international aid.

Investors have been expecting Russia to default for months. Insurance contracts that cover Russian debt have rated an 80% probability of default for weeks, and ratings agencies like Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s have put the country’s debt deep in junk territory.

HOW TO KNOW IF A COUNTRY IS IN DEFAULT?

Rating agencies can lower the default rating or a court can decide the matter. Bondholders who have credit default swaps – contracts that act as insurance policies against default – can ask a committee of financial firm representatives to decide whether a default on debt payment should trigger a payment, which is still not a statement default.

The Credit Default Determination Committee – an industry group of banks and investment funds – ruled on June 7 that Russia had failed to pay the required additional interest after making a payment on a post-debt bond. April 4 due date. But the committee postponed further action due to uncertainty over how the sanctions could affect any settlement.

WHAT CAN INVESTORS DO?

The formal way to declare a default is if 25% or more of bondholders say they haven’t received their money. Once that happens, the provisions state that all of Russia’s other foreign bonds are also in default, and bondholders could then seek a court order to demand payment.

Under normal circumstances, investors and the failing government typically negotiate a settlement in which bondholders receive new bonds that are worth less but give them at least partial compensation.

But the sanctions prevent relations with the Russian Ministry of Finance. And no one knows when the war will end or how many defaulted bonds might be worth.

In that case, declaring default and suing “might not be the wisest choice,” Auslander said. It is not possible to negotiate with Russia and there are so many unknowns that creditors may decide to “hold on for now”.

Investors who wanted to get out of Russian debt have probably already headed for the exits, leaving those who might have bought bonds at bargain prices in hopes of enjoying a long-term settlement. And they might want to keep a low profile for a while to avoid being associated with war.

Once a country defaults, it may be cut off from borrowing in the bond market until the default is resolved and investors regain confidence in the government’s ability and willingness to pay. But Russia has already been cut off from Western capital markets, so any return to borrowing is far from the case anyway.

The Kremlin can still borrow rubles at home, where it relies mainly on Russian banks to buy its bonds.

WHAT WOULD BE THE IMPACT OF A DEFAULT BY RUSSIA?

War-related Western sanctions have driven foreign companies to flee Russia and cut off the country’s trade and financial ties with the rest of the world. The defect would be one more symptom of this isolation and this disturbance.

Investment analysts cautiously believe that a Russian default would not have the same impact on global financial markets and institutions as an earlier default in 1998. At the time, Russia’s default on national ruble bonds led the US government to step in and call on the banks. to bail out Long-Term Capital Management, a large US hedge fund whose collapse, it was feared, could have shaken the entire financial and banking system.

Bondholders – for example, funds that invest in emerging market bonds – could suffer heavy losses. Russia, however, played only a small role in emerging market bond indices, limiting losses for fund investors.

While war itself has devastating consequences in terms of human suffering and rising food and energy prices around the world, a default on government bonds would “certainly not be systemically relevant”, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said.

SG/SM/21350

Here is the text of the video message from UN Secretary-General António Guterres to the Ministerial Conference titled “Responding to the Multiple Challenges of Global Food Security”, in Berlin today:

I thank Germany for convening this meeting, and Chancellor [Olaf] Scholz as the Global Crisis Response Group’s champion on food, energy and finance.

We are facing an unprecedented global hunger crisis. The war in Ukraine has compounded issues that have been brewing for years: climate change; the COVID-19 pandemic; the deeply uneven recovery. This was already evident when I visited the Sahel region of Africa last month. Leaders warned me that if we don’t act now, a dangerous situation could turn into a disaster. The Horn of Africa is also suffering from its worst drought in decades.

According to the World Food Program (WFP), in the past two years the number of severely food insecure people worldwide has more than doubled to 276 million. There is a real risk that multiple famines will be declared in 2022.

And 2023 could be even worse. The main costs for farmers are fertilizers and energy. Fertilizer prices have risen by more than half over the past year and energy prices by more than two-thirds. All crops will be affected, including rice and maize, affecting billions of people in Asia, Africa and the Americas. This year’s food access problems could become next year’s global food shortage. No country will be immune to the social and economic repercussions of such a disaster.

Humanitarian aid is essential, but it is not enough. Because it’s not just a food crisis. It goes beyond food and requires a coordinated multilateral approach, with multidimensional solutions.

First, there can be no effective solution to the global food crisis without reintegrating Ukrainian food production, as well as Russian-produced food and fertilizers, into world markets – despite the war. I have been in intense contact with Ukraine, the Russian Federation, Turkey, the United States, the European Union and others on this issue.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), Rebeca Grynspan, and my humanitarian chief, Martin Griffiths, continue talks with a view to reaching a comprehensive agreement that will allow Ukraine to export food, not only by land, but by the Black Sea, and will bring unrestricted Russian food and fertilizers to world markets. I will not go into details because public statements could hamper the success of the ongoing talks.

Second, solving the food crisis requires solving the financial crisis in the developing world. Hundreds of millions of people living on the poverty line have been crushed by this crisis — informal workers who are mostly women; smallholder farmers; micro and small business owners; People with Disabilities.

Developed countries and international financial institutions must make resources available to help governments support and invest in their people, leaving no one behind.

Developing countries facing default must have access to effective debt relief to keep their economies afloat and their people prospering. Financial institutions need to find the flexibility and understanding to get resources where they are needed most. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) proposal for a food import financing mechanism could help countries most at risk meet their immediate needs.

Today’s discussions are an opportunity to take concrete steps to stabilize global food markets and tackle commodity price volatility. We need strong political and private sector leadership for a coordinated multilateral response. We cannot accept mass hunger and starvation in the 21st century. Thanks.

More than 127,000 public sector workers have received student loan debt forgiveness.

Federal student loan repayments have been on hold for more than two years due to the pandemic. As borrowers check their student loan account and consider resuming payments before the the hiatus is set to end on August 31Public service workers like teachers, nurses, first responders, government employees, and firefighters have the opportunity to get student loan forgiveness.

After changing the rules in October 2021 and again in april this year, the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program has now forgiven a total of $7.3 billion in student loans for more than 127,000 borrowers, the United States Department of Education announced in early June. During President Joe Biden’s tenure, the department has approved a total of $25 billion in student loan relief since January 2021.

This initiative to help more public servants qualify for student loan forgiveness began last fall when the PSLF program extended debt relief to more teachers, nurses, firefighters and eligible civil servants. Other changes in April improved tracking of borrowers in income-driven repayment plans and those who were improperly placed on forbearance by lenders.

Read more: With interest rates on the rise, should you refinance your student loans?

“Borrowers who dedicate a decade of their life to public service should be able to count on the promise of public service loan forgiveness,” US Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said in October. “The system has not delivered on that promise to date, but that is about to change for many borrowers who have served their communities and their country.”

In addition to the expanded PSLF exemption, the Federal student loan payment break extended until August 31, and the Biden administration is exploring more widespread cancellation of student loans for federal student loan holders.

How do you know if you qualify for loan relief through the expanded PSLF program? And how to apply? Here’s everything you need to know about civil service loan forgiveness.

What are the changes to the PSLF program?

The PSLF program, first launched in 2007, was designed to help civil servants repay their loans faster. The program works by providing loan forgiveness to eligible government officials who have made 120 eligible student loan payments. Still nearly 99% of borrowers who applied since 2008 were denied before the October expansion.

Under the PSLF’s new limited waiver program, the Department of Education is making it easier for borrowers to enroll and receive program benefits. These include making it easier to identify and deal with potential errors made by their loan servicers – and expanding the types of loans that will now be eligible for the forgiveness. Another focus will be on improving benefits for service members, including converting time spent on active duty into loan repayment, the department said.

Some restrictions are temporarily relaxed, offering new categories of borrowers the opportunity to receive a discount through loan consolidation. Previously, only direct federal loans were eligible for the PSLF. Now other federal ready such as FFEL, federally guaranteed loans from private lenders, Perkins loans, and those with non-standard or non-income-based repayment plans may be eligible. (Note: the exemption only applies to federal loans – although these make up the vast majority of student loan debt, accounting for more than 90% of the total.)

Borrowers can also receive credit for past payments and periods of employment, such as active military service, for which they would not have qualified in the past.

The limited derogation gives borrowers a full year to apply for the PSLF program under its new terms and greatly expands eligibility. Previously, there were limited options for appealing a denial of a PSLF request, and only 5% of people who applied because PSLF has never benefited from debt forgiveness.

Who is eligible for the PSLF?

To qualify for the PSLF, you must be employed full-time by a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government agency—this includes the military—or nonprofit organization. You must have direct loans or other types of federally guaranteed loans that have already been consolidated into direct loans, and you must make 120 qualifying payments (10 years of payments). Examples of eligible borrowers for the PSLF are workers like teachers, nurses, and firefighters who serve their local communities.

Who is eligible for student debt cancellation under the new PSLF terms?

The PSLF has expanded borrower eligibility in the sense that more loan types and payment plans are eligible for forgiveness than ever before, but borrowers who can apply are still limited to public sector workers. Thus, more than 550,000 borrowers already eligible for the PSLF can now benefit from an additional discount. There are several specific ways to meet the requirements and check if you are eligible.

The easiest way to determine if you qualify is to apply for the Limited Waiver. Completing the waiver will help you do things like consolidate different types of loans or certify previous periods of employment for credit.

And even if you suspended your monthly student loan payments during the pandemic, you are still eligible for additional relief from the PSLF. In fact, each suspended payment still counts as an eligible payment toward your goal. So if your payments have been suspended for 22 months, that counts as 22 on-time payments.

How do I apply for a PSLF pardon?

The Ministry of Education has a dedicated tool to guide you in your request for a limited exemption. The deadline to apply for the waiver is October 31, 2022, but the sooner you apply, the better. Some borrowers may not have to do anything to have their loan cancelled, but it’s a good idea to confirm your specific details.

What if I didn’t receive credit for past payments?

In the past, if you made payments but your loan servicer had incomplete or inaccurate records, you had to almost no recourse to counter their claims. Now, with the limited waiver, you can apply for forgiveness and have your payments count towards your debt and forgiveness.

Which loans are eligible for the PSLF?

Previously, only direct loans with a standard or income-driven repayment plan were eligible for PSLF. However, for a limited time, you may be able to receive credit for past payments on federal loans that were not previously eligible for PSLF, regardless of your repayment plan. Borrowers with FFEL, Perkins and other federal loans may need to consolidate their loans through the Direct Consolidation Program by October 31.

What other policy changes should I know about?

The Department of Education said in its statement that it will continue to roll out and update its policies in the coming months as it attempts to get the PSLF program back on track.


Correction, January 25: This article previously stated that private loans would be eligible for student loan forgiveness under the new waiver. It was wrong. In addition to direct loans, only FFEL loans – which are federally backed, but often issued by private lenders – Perkins loans and other federal loans are eligible for the PSLF exemption.

‘Yes’ – Biden to soon decide on student loan relief and gas tax holiday to fight inflation https://caligarimovie.com/yes-biden-to-soon-decide-on-student-loan-relief-and-gas-tax-holiday-to-fight-inflation/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 20:59:39 +0000 https://caligarimovie.com/yes-biden-to-soon-decide-on-student-loan-relief-and-gas-tax-holiday-to-fight-inflation/ US President Joe Biden talks to reporters as he walks on the beach in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, … [+] June 20, 2022.

President Biden confirmed Monday that he is close to making a decision on student loan forgiveness and gas tax relief for millions of Americans.

“Yes,” Biden said Monday in response to a reporter’s question about whether he was close to a decision on enacting a large-scale student loan forgiveness. Biden also said he would decide within days whether to support a gas tax exemption. The administration is looking at these options as potential tools to counter rising prices and historic inflation.

Here is the latest.

Biden may support gas tax holidays and gas discount cards

Biden plans to support a pause on the federal gasoline tax in response to worsening inflation and historically high gasoline prices. Gasoline tax is just over 18 cents per gallon.

“I’m hoping to have a decision based on the data I’m looking for by the end of the week,” Biden told reporters Monday in Delaware.

Biden would not have the power to unilaterally enact a gas tax exemption. Congress should pass legislation to suspend the gas tax. But Biden’s public support could spur Congress to act. Biden is also reportedly considering supporting sending gas rebate cards to millions of Americans to help offset the cost of rising gas prices.

Biden eyes broad student loan waiver

Unlike the gas tax, many student loan legal experts and Democrats in Congress say Biden has the legal authority to enact broad student loan forgiveness through executive action, without Congress needing to. to pass a bill.

Biden has consistently supported large-scale student loan forgiveness since his 2020 presidential campaign. Until recently, however, administration officials were calling on Congress to pass a student loan forgiveness bill. With such legislation looking unlikely to pass before the midterm elections, the administration is under increasing pressure to use executive action to write off student loan debt on a massive scale. And Biden has recently expressed more openness to doing so.

While Biden rejected $50,000 in large student loan forgiveness — an amount backed by student loan borrower advocacy groups, civil rights organizations and top Democrats in Congress — he indicated he could support $10,000 in student loan forgiveness for borrowers. Recent reports suggest that the administration is strongly considering imposing income restrictions on eligibility for student loan forgiveness, which could complicate and delay the implementation of any student loan relief.

Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said earlier this month that federal student aid officials are “ready to roll” and will implement whatever Biden decides to do for student borrowers. Administration officials have repeatedly stressed that no final decision has yet been made.

Biden may extend student loan hiatus

While not specifically mentioned by Biden on Monday, the administration will also soon have to decide whether to extend the current student loan payment pause, which is in effect for most (but not all) federal loan borrowers. students since March 2020. This relief also includes an interest freeze and a suspension of collection efforts for defaulted federal student loans.

After several short-term extensions by President Trump and President Biden, the most recent extension to the student loan payment pause is set to end on August 31. It means student loan payments would resume for millions of borrowers in September for the first time in two and a half years.

Ministry of Education officials have hinted that a further extension is possible. And Education Secretary Miguel Cardona promised borrowers in May they would have “a long on-ramp with clear information” before resuming payments. Time is running out, the administration may be heading for another extension of the student loan pause.

Meanwhile, other administration officials have suggested that any decision to extend the student loan payment break could be tied to a decision on a broad student pardon. A senior White House official recently indicated that at least some in the administration see the resumption of student loan repayments as a necessary inflationary counterbalance to the cancellation of billions of dollars in federal student loans.

Pharrell just changed five lives.

The multi-hyphen and its Something In the Water festival canceled the student debt of five young black leaders. The generous move was announced Friday at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, DC, where the NAACP hosted a roundtable on the black student debt crisis. The event was hosted by Wisdom Cole, the organization’s National Youth and Colleges Director.

“Pharrell changed their lives forever. It was a powerful moment,” Cole said. WJLA. “Now imagine if President Biden made this a reality for all student debt holders in America. Student debt continues to disproportionately plague the black community and crush opportunities for so many black people.

He continued, “Student debt continues to disproportionately plague the black community and crush opportunity for so many black people. It’s time to close the racial wealth gap, it’s time for President Biden to keep his promise.

You can watch their emotional reactions to the news below.

The Biden administration extended the pause on student loan repayments earlier this year and is expected to announce a decision on loan cancellation this summer. The president has previously confirmed he won’t forgive $50,000 in student loans, which many have demanded; however, he told the nation he was considering some form of debt reduction.

“I’m not considering a $50,000 debt reduction,” Biden said in April. “But I’m looking closely at whether or not there will be further debt forgiveness, and I’ll have an answer on that within the next two weeks.”

Paris / Khartoum — The Paris Club* has published its annual report for 2021, in which it explains that the multilateral agreement on debt relief for Sudan through the enhanced initiative for heavily indebted poor countries (HIPC) was suspended “after the removal of the Transitional Government of Sudan by military forces”.

In its press release, the Paris Club explained that it continues to be very active in promoting coordinated multilateral solutions to sovereign debt problems around the world in 2021.

It had aimed to support low-income countries also through the implementation of the HIPC for which the Paris Club signed a multilateral agreement with Sudan on July 15, 2021. “However, after the dismissal of the Transitional Government of Sudan by military forces, the signing of bilateral agreements implementing this multilateral agreement is suspended until the situation improves and implementation of the IMF program resumes,” the statement said.

In the report, the Paris Club explains that it “continued its actions to implement the enhanced initiative in favor of heavily indebted poor countries […] by an agreement to restructure the external public debt of Sudan concluded on July 15, 2021”.

He explained that this enhanced HIPC initiative consists of a two-phase approach: “The first phase, known as the decision point, opens access to interim debt relief; final debt relief is provided at the end of the second phase, the completion point”. So far, 38 countries, including Sudan, have reached the decision point of the enhanced HIPC Initiative and Sudan reached it in June 2021.

“Paris Club members have collectively felt that bilateral agreements cannot be signed until the situation improves”

The report went on to explain that “in light of recent events and the removal of Sudan’s transitional government by military forces, Paris Club members collectively believe that bilateral agreements cannot be signed until the situation will not improve and that the IMF program will not have been implemented. resumes”.

The President of the African Development Bank said the Caribbean and Africa desperately need debt relief, debt restructuring and sustainable debt.

Delivering the keynote address at the Dr. William G Demas Memorial Lecture in the Turks and Caicos Islands on Tuesday evening, Dr. Akinwumi A. Adesin said the two regions needed special drawing rights significantly higher than those allocated by the Fund. international monetary policy (IMF).

While bilateral debt represents 27% of debt compared to 52% in 2000, commercial debt represents 40% of total debt, compared to 17% in 2000. The cost of servicing Africa’s debt was 221 billion dollars in 2019 – a 44% of the government’s annual revenue of $501 billion,” he said.

“The International Monetary Fund has issued the largest Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) in its history, at $650 billion. However, Africa only received $33 billion in SDRs. The Caribbean region received only SDR 1.75 billion or $2.5 billion. A challenge of course in the Caribbean region is that with so many small countries, with a high degree of vulnerability to external shocks, and all with large financing needs, many more levels of SDRs are needed.

He said that given the nature of the economies, the question is how to pool these SDRs so that the region can benefit in terms of increased borrowing from international capital markets, a proposal being pushed by the President. of the Caribbean Development Bank. .

“The African Development Bank is pleased to work in strategic partnership with the International Monetary Fund on Special Drawing Rights (SDRs). Our goal is simple: to use SDRs to accelerate Africa’s development. Africa can accelerate its development and face other challenges such as climate change, debt, insecurity and the effects of the Russian war in Ukraine on their economies, if we make better use of special drawing rights (SDR) from the International Monetary Fund,” he said.

He said the African Union has called for a reallocation of $100 billion of SDRs to Africa, part of which is going through the African Development Bank, as the prescribed holder of SDRs.

“We should use SDRs more pragmatically, to support countries. The provision of SDRs also through multilateral development banks has several advantages. First, multilateral development banks can take advantage of SDRs. At the African Development Bank, we can quadruple the leverage of SDRs. Second, SDRs can be absorbed by the Bank as equity, which will expand our ability to lend to countries,” he explained.

“Third, the mobilized SDRs will be used to provide additional capital and financing to the SDRs to achieve impactful results on the ground. The MDBs will also work closely with IMF development banks in Africa, within the framework of pooled financing. SDRs can also be provided as concessional loans to the African Development Fund.

He said the African Development Bank is confident that the provision of SDRs to Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs), such as the African Development Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank and the Caribbean Development Bank, will also enhance the global financial architecture.

“This will promote greater complementarity between the IMF and the multilateral development banks. The IMF will focus on macroeconomic and fiscal stabilization, its areas of comparative advantage, while the multilateral development banks will focus on sector programs, including sector policies that will ensure that the Poverty Reduction Trust Fund and Growth (PRGT) and the new Resilience Fund and Sustainability Trust (RST). Also providing SDRs to Multilateral Development Banks will be a game-changer to accelerate the development of countries. We can be very creative and suggest that the acronym for SDRs could become “Supporting Development Revitalization (SDR)”. This way, people on the street will feel the effects of SDRs on their lives.

The William G Demas Lecture Series was held as part of the 52nd Annual Meetings of the Caribbean Development Bank.

This Huge Temporary Student Loan Forgiveness Extension Ends in Months – Advocates Urge Biden to Extend It https://caligarimovie.com/this-huge-temporary-student-loan-forgiveness-extension-ends-in-months-advocates-urge-biden-to-extend-it/ Thu, 09 Jun 2022 15:35:38 +0000 https://caligarimovie.com/this-huge-temporary-student-loan-forgiveness-extension-ends-in-months-advocates-urge-biden-to-extend-it/ US President Joe Biden speaks during the opening ceremony of the 9th Summit of the Americas at the … [+] Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California on June 8, 2022.

A huge expansion of a critical student loan forgiveness program is set to end in just a few months. Meanwhile, millions of borrowers may not even know the new program exists. Student borrower advocacy groups and unions are now urging President Biden to extend it.

Here is the latest.

Student loan forgiveness extended to borrowers working in the civil service

In October, the Biden administration announced a temporary and sweeping expansion of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program (PSLF). PSLF can eliminate federal student loan debt for borrowers who dedicate their careers to nonprofit or government work. Ten years of service can result in full student loan forgiveness.

But the PSLF program has long been plagued by complex eligibility requirements, administrative problems by service agents and poor oversight by the Department of Education. The result was an anemic approval rating that never really exceeded 2%.

Through the new “Limited PSLF Waiver” program, the Biden administration has temporarily relaxed several key PSLF requirements and restrictions. With this waiver, the Department of Education will be able to retroactively count prior loan repayment periods that would otherwise have been disallowed under the original PSLF rules, including payments made under federal student loan repayment plans. ineligible or on non-direct federal loans. .

A subsequent similar temporary initiative announced in April to reform Income Contingent Repayment (IDR) plans will also allow certain deferral and forbearance periods to also count towards the PSLF.

Taken together, the changes to the PSLF and IDR will potentially enable hundreds of thousands of borrowers to obtain billions of dollars in student loan forgiveness. And according to the Department of Education, more than $7 billion in student loan forgiveness has already been granted since the changes were announced. Much of this has been achieved through automatic student loan forgiveness for borrowers who already have direct program federal student loans and who have already certified their employment by submitting PSLF employment certificate forms.

But many other borrowers will need to take action to benefit from the changes. Student loan borrowers with student loans from the FFEL program — an older loan program where private lenders disbursed federal student loans that were ultimately government-insured — would need to consolidate those loans through the loan. Federal Direct Consolidation to be eligible for the limited PSLF exemption. And borrowers who have not yet certified their government employment by completing and submitting the PSLF employment certification forms should do so as well.

The limited PSLF waiver ends on October 31, 2022 – in less than four months. And since the direct consolidation process can sometimes take a few months, borrowers who are unaware of the temporary initiative or who have not yet taken action are increasingly at risk of missing the boat on cancellation. of the student loan.

Lawyers seek extension of limited PSLF waiver

The Student Borrower Protection Center (SBPC), an organization that defends student borrowers, published new data on Thursday suggesting millions of borrowers may be eligible for relief through the PSLF but have not yet had their student loans forgiven. Given the possibility that many borrowers will be excluded from relief under the limited PSLF waiver, advocacy groups have called on the Biden administration to extend the program beyond the October deadline.

“The Biden administration is delivering a debt-free future for public service workers across the country, but we’ve only scratched the surface,” said SBPC Executive Director Mike Pierce in a statement. “Secretary Cardona must recognize that you can’t have too much of a good thing – prolong the [PSLF] give up now and provide debt relief to millions in the future.”

A coalition of unions echoed those sentiments. “The PSLF’s limited exemption represents a unique opportunity for our educators to access student debt forgiveness,” said Becky Pringle, president of the National Education Association (NEA), one of the largest unions teachers in the country. “However, its rollout was quick, and by the time officials understood the new temporary rules, the program was halfway done…Educators and public service workers need more time to get forgiveness they deserve.”

“Public service workers dedicate their lives and careers to keeping our communities safe, healthy and strong,” said AFSCME President Lee Saunders. “But many of their jobs require a university degree or even an advanced degree, which has pushed many public service workers into debt. You don’t get into public service to get rich, and those who step up and put their communities first shouldn’t be locked into an endless spiral of student debt. We owe it to these everyday heroes to ensure that every eligible borrower has access to the relief they have earned for their service to our communities.

So far, the Biden administration has given no indication whether an extension of the limited PSLF waiver is under consideration.
