On Oct. 6, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education announced a temporary change to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program rules as a result of the COVID-19 emergency. For a limited time, borrowers may receive credit for past periods of repayment that otherwise would not qualify for PSLF. This one-time waiver will allow individuals to rectify federally held student loans and qualify for PSLF if they are working for a qualifying employer and apply before Oct. 31, 2022.
The American Medical Association (AMA) and the Department of Education are hosting a free webinar on September 20, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. Central Time, to discuss the PSLF program and answer your questions about the limited-time waiver.
In the webinar, AMA President-elect Jesse M. Ehrenfeld, MD, MPH, will be joined by Ashley Harrington, JD, senior advisor to the chief operating officer at the Department of Education’s Office of Federal Student Aid.
