Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program Underused

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has created a new tool kit for employers to increase awareness about the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, the ABA Journal reports. The program forgives unpaid balances on federal direct student loans after 10 years of work for the government or nonprofits. In an interview with the New York Times, attorney Raha Wala, who works for an international human rights organization and has $200,000 in law school debt, said the program is “enabling me to do the work that I love.”
