Thousands of Connecticut residents have dedicated their careers to public service. The federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program recognizes this choice with complete student loan cancellation after 10 years of public service work and loan payments. Teachers, nurses, government and nonprofit employees, veterans and others are among those eligible for this program.
The temporary PSLF waiver is a time-limited change to PSLF rules that allows borrowers to receive credit for past periods of repayment that would otherwise not qualify. This one-time opportunity ends on October 31st, which is a reminder to act now and complete an application at: studentaid.gov/pslf.
For additional information, including how to get help with your application, you can also visit pslfCT.org.
