Last Chance to Take Action!
There are only two days left to urge the U.S. Department of Education to make Income-Based Repayment (IBR) and Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) as fair and accessible as possible. In the last three weeks, more than 1000 people have submitted comments on the proposed regulations for these important new federal programs, but the decision-makers still need to hear from you! Let's keep the pressure on so that the Department addresses two unnecessary and costly obstacles for borrowers:
In IBR, some married borrowers would have to pay up to twice as much in loan payments as unmarried borrowers in otherwise identical situations.
Borrowers could be left in the dark for years about whether or not their jobs are eligible for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF).
Submit your comments before 2pm ET on Thursday, August 14th, and we will deliver them to the Department before the deadline.
