Public Servants: Sign up for Public Service Loan Forgiveness by October 31st!

President Biden and the U.S. Department of Education have made temporary changes to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program, making it easier for our military, non-profit organizations, and people working in government to cancel their federal student loan debt or receive credit toward forgiveness. Use the simple tool to check your eligibility and make sure you’re taking advantage of this opportunity and apply by October 31st to receive these benefits.  

PSLF is different from the one-time student loan debt relief of up to $20,000. PSLF is a program for people who work in public service in federal, state, tribal, or local government, or for a non-profit organization.    

Until Monday, October 31, 2022, federal student loan borrowers can get credit for payments that did not previously qualify for PSLF or Temporary Expanded Public Service Loan Forgiveness (TEPSLF). 

This limited waiver period will retroactively grant credit towards Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program for months that were previously disallowed due to incorrect loan type or for making incorrect payments.  

In short, borrowers will gain additional PSLF credit, even if they had been told previously that they had the wrong loan type or the wrong repayment plan. I encourage you to apply again even if you were denied in the past.  

Act quickly! If you believe you qualify for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program and are entitled to additional qualifying credits, visit to access the PSLF Help tool to check your PSLF eligibility and how to submit the PSLF form to certify employment and apply for forgiveness. Deadline is October 31st, 2022. Please share this information with your family, friends or colleagues who might be eligible
