This law new will affect the way students apply for loans. There are a few important points to keep in mind when applying for loans.

Student loan forgiveness programs
The Biden Administration is facing legal challenges to its proposed student loan forgiveness programs under the Higher Education Relief Opportunity for Students Act. The law allows the government to modify or waive federal student loans during times of national emergency. The president, however, must have legal standing before he can take action. Biden and the Democrats hope the policy will boost their political standing in the Nov. 8 midterm elections, when control of Congress could be decided.
The PSLF program was created in 2007, and is designed to provide borrowers with an easier way to pay off their student loan debt. Under the program, borrowers must be working in a specified field and make 120 qualifying payments for 10 years.
Safe time for victims of family offenses, sexual offenses, stalking and human trafficking
Safe time is available to victims of crime, including family offenses, sexual assault, and stalking. These victims are entitled to legal protections, including denial of bail and custody. Many jurisdictions also have specific protections for victims, such as granting them a substitute mailing address. This alternate address can be used for employment, voter registration, and school purposes.
The new law expands the use of sick leave to include “safe time” for victims of family offenses, sexual crimes, stalking, and human trafficking. In addition to the standard sick time leave, employees are eligible to use this time to seek medical treatment, relocate, enroll their children in a new school, obtain victim services, and meet with law enforcement.
