39. Find A Student Loan Forgiveness Program

If you have Stafford loans (which are student loans underwritten by the US government), then there is no reason for you not to be enrolled in a student loan forgiveness program. A student loan forgiveness program allows you to make income-based payments for ten years. At the end of the 10-year period, all of the qualifying loans are forgiven.

Many people think that student loan forgiveness programs are only for people who go into public services, such as teaching at a low-income school or working for AmeriCorps. But there are many loan forgiveness programs, and one will likely fit your working and income situation. Go to your student loan account and find how you can get into a loan forgiveness program.
