In this week's episode, we have a returning guest, attorney Christie Arkovich, discussing student loan forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.
Christie and I talked in Episode 50 about different ways to eliminate or negotiate student loan debt.
Today, we talk about the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program - which is a 2007 program instituted by President Bush, that allowed student loan borrowers to pay based on what they could afford, and satisfy the debt after a certain period of time (without paying it back in full) if they worked in a public service industry (versus working in the private sector).
The problem is that many student loan borrowers are NOT in the program, even though they believe they are, and are being told by the student loan companies that they are in the program!
Christie can help if you believe you are in one of these programs, or if you want to see if you qualify for one of these programs. Christie can also help if you have other student loan issues.
