The first step in seeking Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) for your student loan is determining if you have worked for a qualifying employer.
To make it a little easier to take that first step, the Department of Education has added a new tool that allows student loan borrowers to quickly determine if they work for a qualifying PSLF employer. Borrowers can use the new PSLF Employer Search tool without having to first log in to their StudentAid.gov account (as was previously required).
According to the Department, the search tool provides easy-to-follow prompts and guides users through the process to determine if their employer qualifies for PSLF. Users will receive a message about next steps if their employer qualifies for PSLF, does not qualify for PSLF, or isn’t listed in the database.
