An accountant who paid off $100,000 in private student debt deserves relief, too.

An accountant from Connecticut, age 34, claims to have graduated from college in 2009 with more than $100,000 in private loans.

She still considers herself to be quite fortunate.   

She was able to pay off her student loans in March 2022 with the assistance of her husband, who did not have any of his own.

If Ash, who requested that her last name not be used to preserve her privacy, hadn't paid off all of her loans earlier this year, 

she wouldn't have benefited from Wednesday's news of student loan forgiveness.

The roughly 2 million debtors of private student loans won't receive any relief. For debtors making less than $125,000 per year.

The Biden-Harris Administration's debt forgiveness proposal erases $10,000 in federal student debt; for those with Pell Grants, it erases up to $20,000 in debt.
