Getting to Zero Student Loan Debt Through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program  

Informational webinar sessions in partnership with:

An estimated 9 million public service employees across the U.S. and 524,000 in New York may be eligible for student loan forgiveness! 

Let’s make it happen! 

Last year, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) announced a temporary opportunity for expanded loan forgiveness for borrowers who work in public service. The goal was to remedy past administrative and program implementation failures. Millions of borrowers across the U.S. may have their federal loans forgiven or get closer to forgiveness through what is known as the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Temporary Waiver Opportunity.

Action may be required by October 31, 2022, to benefit from this relief. Help us spread the word! If you or anyone you know works for a government or non-profit employer, take advantage of our upcoming webinars and resources below.

PSLF Waiver Success Stories

Cynthia Chaldekas, a Senior Librarian at the New York Public Library, had over $96,000 forgiven through the PSLF waiver. Cynthia has been in public service her entire career.

I couldn’t believe that I was done with my student loan debt!”

Albert Robinson, an Associate Director at Bronx Community College, had $66,000 forgiven through PSLF.

“My student loans were forgiven and I even got back some of the payments I made over the 120. I got my financial freedom back.”

Kelly Gonzalez, a director at a non-profit, has been practicing public interest law for twenty years. She had $50,000 forgiven through the PSLF waiver.

I was extremely concerned that I would not qualify due to technical reasons. Getting my student debt forgiven has meant more financial stability for my family.
