There is no Student Loans of American Program. That is not a Department of Education program. For more red flags, look at this article: http://thecollegeinvestor.com/16429/is-your-student-loan-repayment-company-a-scam/

THIS IS A SCAM? Secure approval code? Made up number looks like SL000-00000.
Not a Department of Education program!!
Located in San Diego, California. Not in Washington DC like the mailer says. What a joke?

They met a few of the items mentioned in the article...mainly the one where they charge you $800.00 for their program. To be safe, I cancelled the program and I'm going to the bamk to stop payment on the auto-deductions to my account. Thanks for your help!

Did you find out any information on this company? I got sucked into it and want to cancel it if you find out it's a scam.

Student Loan Forgiveness / Re: Student Loan forgiveness BEFORE 1998

At this point, likely no.

You could potentially re-consolidate into a new student loan, and that loan could be eligible for Public Service Loan Forgiveness. But that would require 120 payments from today, moving forward - so 10 more years. You'll likely have paid off your loan balance by then.

Student Loan Forgiveness / Student Loan forgiveness BEFORE 1998
« Last post by msteacher06 on March 13, 2017, 04:53:57 PM »
I have just a few thousand dollars of student loans left; including both undergrad and Master's work.  Part of my loans came before 1998 so I am not qualifying for ANY loan forgiveness. I have been a teacher for 20 years, 16 in a Title 1 School and 19 as a special education teacher.  I cannot believe how many new teachers are getting their loans forgiven, but after my years of service I cannot get a few thousand forgiven? 

Is there something out there I'm missing?  Something that will help me?

Hi there. I have a question that maybe you can help me with.  My son is currently paying on his student loans.  He graduated from the same college he  is working at now. He has been employed at this college full time for about 3 years and worked there part-time for about 4 yrs.  He oversees the libraries at this college.  The college is a non-profit school.  I was just wondering if there might be something I missed while going through the loan forgiveness sites I have checked out. Thanks for your time.
