If you work in the public service, a little-known government program called “Public Service Loan Forgiveness” could allow you to have all of your direct federal student loans forgiven, tax-free. Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) isn’t a payment plan, like Income-Based Repayment or Pay As You Earn; it’s a separate program that incentivizes a career in the public service.
Check out our new website ForgiveMyStudentDebt.org, which provides detailed information about the existing but low-profile programs that exist to reduce monthly payments and even forgive outstanding debt!
