GovExec Daily: Your Stories of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program

Public servants talk to the podcast about how they have experienced the good and the bad of the Department of Education forgiveness program.

In October, the Biden administration revamped the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, involving a waiver program and changes to the Education Department’s processes. The changes brought more than a hundred thousand people into the program, though they were needed for a 15-year-old program that was rife with confusion about communication, eligibility and breadth. 

GovExec Daily spoke to public servants employees from across the country about the program and their experiences within it. Some people had their loans forgiven, while others are still in purgatory. In addition to our Q&As with borrowers, we spoke to people who fought to have their loans forgiven, with varying levels of success.
