Public Student Loan Forgiveness Program

Public Student Loan Forgiveness Program

It’s time for part two of my student loan shows. The Public Student Loan Forgiveness Program has a big perk from serving in the military—student loan forgiveness. Sadly, not as many people use it as should. In this second episode, Adam Hagerman explains what you need to know about the PSLF to take advantage of the program. Adam is an AFC®, CFP®, with a mission to provide financial education that is easy to understand and free from outside influence. In addition to his financial education site, Adam also works full-time as a civilian for the federal government. In his position, he’s provided financial coaching and education to thousands of civilian and military employees over the past 10 years. Adam shares the program, who it’s for, when you should start submitting your information, and avoiding mistakes.
