PSLF Program
« on: March 05, 2018, 10:18:50 AM »
Two Questions:

1) Does employment at any doctor's office count as a public service for the public service student loans forgiveness program? I know most hospitals count, but what about something like being employed at an orthopedic clinic?

2) Can you get retroactive credit for the PSLF program. For instance, if you've worked for a hospital for 6 years, and you've been making regular loan payments, but you've never registered for the PSLF program before, can you get credit for those 6 years of payments?

Thank you so much for any help!

Andrew

1. If it's a non-profit clinic, yes. For profit, no.

2. Yes, as long as you meet the criteria for PSLF, it doesn't matter if you never certified prior. You will have to go get those 6 years of employment certified, which could be a challenge.
