In October 2017 the first Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) applications were processed. Some of those applications were denied because some or all of a borrower’s payments were not made on a qualifying repayment plan for PSLF. If this happened to you or one of your employees, there’s good news. Loan forgiveness may be available under a temporary opportunity. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 provided limited, additional conditions under which borrowers may become eligible for loan forgiveness if some or all of the payments they made on their William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program loans were under a nonqualifying repayment plan for PSLF. The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is referring to this reconsideration as the Temporary Expanded Public Service Loan Forgiveness (TEPSLF) opportunity. If you believe you or an employee fit this description, check out the TEPSLF web page TEPSLF
and read the guidelines. Want to know more about PSLF? Check out the Fed Loan Servicing website.
