This article surfaced in The New York Times a couple weeks ago:
They Thought They Qualified for Student Loan Forgiveness. Years Later, the Government Changes Its Mind.
I’ve written several times including this long post in September of 2015 that I thought the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program was risky and I did not think it was wise to plan on the PSLF program to be your primary loan repayment strategy.
The risk that the government could change the rules at any time was one of the original reasons I wrote that I didn’t like the program. That is exactly what happened to the subjects of that NY Times article and we’ll see how the pending litigation plays out.
There are other alternatives. If you’d like some help working through those then hit me up.
