Are you one of the millions of borrowers trying to access Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)?

NASW is an official partner in coalition with the Student Borrower Protection Center and other organizations on a campaign to Tell President Biden to Eliminate Student Debt for Public Service Workers. NASW invites social workers to share stories of their experiences in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. We know there are social workers in the profession, who enrolled in PSLF, worked for 10+ years in public service, and have not received debt forgiveness.

Your story and Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) experience matters! Tell President Biden, Secretary Cardona, and the Department of Education to eliminate student debt for those who have worked a decade or more serving their community. Now is the time to fulfill the promise of the PSLF program. Social Workers have played an essential role and served on the frontlines during COVID and have been denied PSLF. Now is the time to share your story and tell the President and Education Secretary Cardona to eliminate student debt for dedicated public service workers.
