3 Ways Trump May Change Student Loans

The Trump administration has proposed some big changes for student loans.
Here’s what to watch for and how it could affect you.
1. The End Of Student Loan Forgiveness?
Student loan forgiveness sounds like a wonderful game plan to many student loan borrowers.
However, it comes at a cost – for taxpayers. Under several student loan forgiveness plans through the federal government, for example, borrowers could have their student loans effectively paid by the federal government.
That doesn’t entirely sit well with the Trump administration, and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has repeatedly stated her goal to balance the interests of both student loan borrowers and taxpayers.
So, what’s the future of student loan forgiveness?
There is no guarantee that student loan forgiveness will continue in its current form, or at all. The Trump administration proposed eliminating Public Service Loan Forgiveness plan from its 2019 budget.
Current participants in Public Service Loan Forgiveness (10 years to student loan forgiveness) or income-based repayment programs (20 to 25 years for student loan forgiveness) may be expected to be safe for student loan forgiveness, but the future of student loan forgiveness may change.
How This Affects You: While student loan forgiveness may end, student loan forgiveness may not be worth it to student loan borrowers in the long run. You may be able to pay off student loans faster or refinance student loans to save money.
