Forgive Student Loans During Bankruptcy

On average, every $100 raised results in an hour of lobbying from our lobbyists

My story

About student loan debt and bankruptcy

Since Congress passed the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, both federal and private student loans are more difficult to discharge in bankruptcy than other types of debt. It can still be discharged, the law requires the borrower to prove the loan causes undue hardship, which is difficult to do. 

H.R. 770, the Discharge Student Loans in Bankruptcy was introduced in Congress on January 24, 2019. The bill would make student loans easy to discharge when somebody declares bankruptcy, easing the burden of people with student loans who are struggling to make a living.
