Student Loan Forgiveness Program

Many SSEU Local 371 Members will have student loans forgiven by October. Can you?

After 14 years with a broken mess, we finally have the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program we always wanted. Because of a special US Department of Education program related to the COVID crisis, 250,000 New Yorkers are eligible to have all their student loans erased. 5,000 New Yorkers have already had an average of $63,935 forgiven!

But the fix is temporary and only lasts until October 31, 2022.

We are working alongside, a coalition of nonprofits, government agencies and labor unions, to spread the word. Many of our colleagues are already working through the process. 

Use the 20 minute Help Tool to see if you are eligible or visit to join a webinar or get 1:1 help.
