Public Employee Student Loan Forgiveness
Most people don’t know that they can remove one tenth of their student loans for every year they work for any non profit or government employer. While you are working for such employers the loan is reported and being paid on time.

Philip G. Schrag  wrote a law review article on this program here Public Employee Student Loan Forgiveness Program.  Also the form to apply for Public Loan Forgiveness is here  Public Service Loan Forgiveness.   The important thing to remember is that this program covers a large portion of people that do not take advantage of it.  Doctors and Nurses that work for hospitals often qualify because they work for non profit corporations (hospitals).  Teachers and other government employees qualify for it.  Nearly 30% of the population including soldiers and persons that work for churches and religious organizations qualify.  However if you work for a church or religious organization your job must involve public service work that is non religious such as being a daycare worker, doctor or teacher that works for that church.

Income Based Repayment and other Discharge Programs
