Dept. of Ed. Releases Forms for PubIic Service Loan Forgiveness Program

On January 31, 2012, the U.S. Department of Education released important new information about how student loan borrowers can certify that they are on track toward qualifying for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program (PSLF).   The PSLF website now includes an “employer certification” form, to help borrowers make sure that they are meeting the Department’s requirements to qualify for PSLF.

Under PSLF, student loan borrowers who work full-time at public service or non-profit organizations and make 120 on-time payments toward their federal student loans can get their remaining balances forgiven.
