400,000 were promised student loan forgiveness. Now they are panicking
More than 400,000 student loan borrowers may have placed their faith in a government program with an uncertain future. The Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program promises to cancel any remaining student debt for those who work for the government or nonprofits if they have been making on-time payments for 10 years. Many teachers, public defenders, Peace Corps workers, and law enforcement officers fit the qualifications.
