HOW THE STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS PROGRAM WORKS

The most common type of student loan forgiveness is The Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. The Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program was established by Congress, through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, as an incentive for individuals to enter the public sector and occupy public sector jobs. Borrowers who have made 120 student loan payments under eligible repayment plans while employed full time by certain public sector employers may have the balance of their student loan debt forgiven. The first of the cancellations of loan balances will be granted beginning in October 2017.
