What Is Public Service Loan Forgiveness


While there is no way to magically make your debt disappear, there are several ways to get your loans forgiven. One of those ways is through public service loan forgiveness. The Obama administration made it possible for those working in a government organization to apply for federal student loan forgiveness. If you are not a government employee, consider these other student loan forgiveness programs.



The public service loan forgiveness program forgives federal student loans for certain borrowers. No matter of your position, if you work for one of the following, you may be eligible for the program:

A government organization, which includes federal, state, local, tribal organization or college/university, or public child or family services agency.

  • AmeriCorps
  • Peace Corps
  • A tax-exempt nonprofit under 501(c)(3) of the IRS tax code (check with your employer)
  • A nonprofit organization that provides one of following public services:
  • Emergency management
  • Military service
  • Public safety
  • Law enforcement
  • Public interest law services
  • Early childhood education
  • Public service for individuals with disabilities and the elderly
  • Public health
  • Public education
  • Public library services
  • School library or other school based services

Certain employers that may be in the above categories may not be eligible if they are partisan political organizations, part of a labor union, or religious organizations.
