    The PSLF program offers complete federal student loan forgiveness after making 120 qualifying payments while working in public service. As you may know, since the Department of Education created a temporary PSLF waiver in October 2021, more than 70,000 student loan borrowers qualified for federal student loan forgiveness under the PSLF program, totaling close to $5 billion in relief. Even more public servants have received credit for past periods of repayment that previously did not qualify, putting them closer to reaching the minimum number of payments required for forgiveness. The Department of Education estimated that at least 550,000 public servants will benefit from the temporary waiver. 

    The temporary waiver allows monthly payments that previously weren’t eligible to count towards the 120 required monthly payments for PSLF. It will help the many borrowers who have previously been denied forgiveness because they had the wrong type of federal loan, were in the wrong type of repayment plan, encountered a payment technicality or administrative error, etc. However, this waiver expires on October 31, 2022. We want to make sure that all public servants have the opportunity to benefit from this important change.
