Here’s how many N.J. residents sought student loan forgiveness under Biden plan now in court

The U.S. Supreme Court is the only thing standing in the way of as many as 759,000 New Jerseyans receiving relief from some or all of their student loan debt, according to figures released Thursday by the White House.

An estimated 493,000 applications already were approved, with the remainder yet to be acted upon as federal courts temporarily suspended the program. Other state residents also could be eligible if the program is resumed.
