What types of employment qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness?


Employment that qualifies for forgiveness must be a job that requires
at least 30 or more hours a week in a public service organization. Jobs that qualify provide specific public services, such as public education or public health, with employers such as federal, state, local, or tribal government organizations, and nonprofit organizations. Some common professions that most likely qualify are nurses, teachers,
law enforcement officers, and public-interest lawyers, among others. Employment qualification determinations are not available until you submit the
Public Service Loan Forgiveness Employment Certification Form.

  1. This program is false. The qualifications are so restrictive, no effective benefit will be realized. While I have served in qualifying institutions for over 13 years continuously, confirmed by the submission of the application, I have been denied because of a distinction not made within this public service announcement. Very disappointing at best.
