What Can You Tell Me About Forgiving My Student Loans? I’m a Social Worker. – Patricia

“Dear Steve,

I read one of your blogs in January concerning Obama’s social work loan forgiveness plan.
I am curious to know if any movement has been made on this. I am a social work working in a
public servcie-non profit agency and wonder if I qualify?

Many thanks,


Dear Patricia,

I have not heard anything more about forgiving student loans specifically for social workers but you might want to investigate the National Health Service Corp that can forgive up to $50,000 in loans for a two year service commitment or maybe the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program from the Federal Student Aid Information Center. You can always give them a call at 800-433-3243 and see what new programs may now be in force.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.
