President Joe Biden announced his plan in August to forgive student debt for millions of federal borrowers, now the website to apply for those benefits is live.

Biden made the announcement yesterday from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

“You will be able to fill in your name, social security number, date of birth and contact information,” the president said in his remarks. “No forms to download. No special logins to remember. It’s available in English and Spanish, on desktop and mobile.”

The site, StudentAid.gov, allows borrowers to complete an application that takes three to five minutes. The application is available for submission until December 31, 2023.

“As millions of people fill out the application, we’re going to make sure the system continues to work as well as possible so we can deliver student loan relief to millions of Americans as quickly and as efficiently as possible,” Biden said.
