- About 9 million Americans with student loans who had applied for the Biden administration’s student-debt relief program mistakenly received emails last month that said their applications had been approved.
- The messages were part of updates the Department of Education issued in November to inform 16 million debt relief applicants that they had been approved to have up to $20,000 forgiven.
- But an additional 9 million people received emails saying they had received loan forgiveness when they had not been approved for relief because the process was halted due to legal challenges, according to officials.
- And others who hadn’t yet applied for the student loan relief program also received the email.
