Public Student Loan Forgiveness 

PSLF is a federal student loan relief program established in 2007 and designed to encourage individuals to enter and continue to work full time in public sector jobs. Participation in the program generally requires that the borrower have a federal Direct Loan, be employed by a qualified employer on a full-time basis and make 120 loan payments under a qualifying repayment plan. Upon meeting these requirements, the borrower’s loans are to be forgiven.  See AFSCME Student Debt Resources for More Information.
