- The purpose of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program is to encourage individuals to enter and continue working in public service jobs.
- You may qualify if you work full-time in a public service position and meet other eligibility requirements.
- This program is for Direct Loans only.
Since the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program requires 120 separate on-time monthly qualifying payments and was just established in 2007, no borrower will be eligible for forgiveness until 2017. Applications will be available closer to that time.
However, we do recommend that you submit employment certification on an annual basis for any months that you were employed with a public service organization and believe you have met the eligibility requirements. See steps below.
