As you know, the plan will include a $10,000 loan forgiveness ($20,000 for Pell Grant recipients) for individuals making less than $125,000 a year. In addition, he is extending the payment pause through December 31 for all borrowers, and those with undergraduate loans can cap their payments at 5% of their monthly income.
