Hello!  Thank you very much for this forum.

My husband consolidated his Direct Unsubsidized Loan in 2011, current balance: $47,196.00.  Ever since then, he has been on IBR.  This year, he has been accepted to  the Federal government and is currently earning $87000.00 annually; increasing to $103,000.00  next year.  Is PSLF still an option?  What tack should he take in paying his student loan given his change in circumstance?  Thank you very much for any guidance you will offer.

PSLF is an option, but he might pay off the loan on IBR before he gets forgiveness. Never hurts to certify and stay on IBR.

Student loan forgiveness is one of the most popular topics on The College Investor. But we know it's confusing - so feel free to ask any questions you may have!

If you don't know where to start, make sure you check out these key articles on student loan forgiveness:

Top Student Loan Forgiveness Programs: This is the list of the top Federal student loan forgiveness programs. These are the best ones out there, so make sure you check if you qualify.

Secret Student Loan Forgiveness Programs: This is the list of student loan forgiveness programs that are part of the income-based repayment plans IBR and PAYE.

Student Loan Forgiveness Programs by State: This is a list of student loan repayment and assistance programs that are offered by individual states and organizations.

Are these loan forgiveness only available for Americans?

These loan forgiveness programs only apply to American Federal student loans.
