Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) is a federal program that allows government and non-profit employees to erase their federal student loans after 10 years of making loan payments while employed in public service. However, until now, the program has had very strict rules about the types of loans and payment plans that are eligible. Many borrowers are unaware of these rules, and as a result, they lose out on getting credit for years of public service and loan payments.

FOR A LIMITED TIME, the federal Department of Education has loosened the rules through a “Limited Waiver,” and many borrowers have an opportunity to count their prior service and payments toward loan forgiveness.

HOWEVER, this does not necessarily happen automatically – you may need to TAKE ACTION SOON if you want to get credit for your service and move closer to erasing your student loans! This webinar will teach you what steps you need to take.

Even if you think you are already eligible for PSLF, we recommend joining our webinar just to be sure. It could save you thousands of dollars and help you get your loans forgiven much more quickly! For more information, visit https://studentaid.gov/announcements-events/pslf-limited-waiver.
