“If you work full-time in a public service job, you may qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness.”
Is your organization working to keep good people? Demographic data tells us that millennials have record levels of student loan debt in proportion to their income. But, they aren’t alone. Some nonprofit staff are required to get degrees for which there is little financial return on investment.
Ideally, your organization works to provide financial security for its most valuable assets: human resources.
Perhaps, though, the Federal Student Loan Forgiveness program will provide you, your staff, colleagues, or nonprofit-employed friends and family some needed relief.
PS – You might also find the alternate payment methods useful. My personal household budget is greatly relieved by a several hundred dollar monthly reduction in my repayment because I use a plan based on my income. Enrollment has been painless and annual eligibility confirmation works seamlessly with filing my taxes. – Lettie
