We have important news that will change many of your lives. The Department of Education announced new rules that make it easier to qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) and improve the application process. Our immediate goal is to help as many people as possible receive loan forgiveness by informing the public and helping them apply.
We know many of you are thrilled and others may be disappointed. Our mission is to end the student debt crisis for everyone, but we also support canceling student debt wherever and whenever we can. This is a win, this is progress for our movement, and this is a step closer to student debt cancellation for all of us.
For now, we want to see public service workers have their loans canceled. If you are a teacher, social worker, veteran, or work for a government agency or nonprofit, we want to help. If you were told you did not qualify or your application was denied, new rules might change that.
