Teachers are eligible for student loan forgiveness. Regular education teachers who work in low income districts for five consecutive years are eligible for $5,000. Special education teachers are eligible for $17,500. I don’t know anyone who has applied for the loan forgiveness and has gotten it the first time.
Today I got the letter from my loan servicer saying I have been granted the entire allowable amount. That is $17,500!!! I checked my account online and there it was! My balance has been reduced by almost half!
Yay me! I needed a ray of sunshine like this!
