The Department of Education recently announced an overhaul of the PSLF program designed to allow millions of public service workers who have been struggling under the weight of student loan debt a path to relief. In short, borrowers who were previously ineligible because they had the wrong loan, were making payments on the wrong payment plan, or were knocked off track due to processing errors can now receive credit toward forgiveness for those years worked in public service.
The Student Borrower Protection Center is partnering with the Department of Education’s office of Federal Student Aid Federal Student Aid and UnidosUS to host a webinar on that will:
- Highlight updates to the PSLF program
- Provide guidance on how to navigate the new PSLF process
- Offer an opportunity to ask questions to Department of Education officials
