Apply for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) before Oct 31

Are you an UW employee with student loans? Due to a temporary waiver from the U.S. Department of Education, you have until Oct 31, 2022 to take advantage of a temporary rule change to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program. You may qualify for forgiveness of the remaining balances after making 120 payments while employed by public sector employers. (You do not need to have made 120 payments before applying to the program). You can either submit the paperwork yourself or pay a fee to use a service called Savi.

UW HR’s PSLF webpage has more details about eligibility, how to apply, and more information about Savi.
