NEA will be hosting a live webinar, Student Loan Relief: What the COVID-19 Relief Law means for Student Loan Borrowers, on Tuesday, April 14 at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT).
Educators, and particularly educators of color, have been burdened by student debt for far too long. And the COVID-19 crisis risks making that debt even more burdensome.
Congress has enacted the CARES Act, a COVID-19 relief law that includes big changes to those who have student debt.
These changes include a suspension of interest and payments for borrowers who have federal student loans from April 10, 2020 to September 30, 2020. NEA is still fighting for a more expansive and more extended suspension of payments. And NEA is also fighting to cancel some or all of our members’ federal student loans.
Join NEA for a Zoom webinar to discuss:
- Details on the student loan provisions in the CARES Act;
- What it means for you and what you should be thinking about doing with your student loans during the suspension period;
- The support available to NEA members to help them manage their loans; and
- What you can do to fight for broader suspension and cancellation.
