Description:

This presentation explains in detail how anyone with high educational debt can benefit from income-driven repayment plans - including Income-Based Repayment and President Obama's new Pay As You Earn plan - and how those working for the government or a nonprofit can earn Public Service Loan Forgiveness. It will also cover the latest legislative and regulatory developments regarding these federal relief options, including President Obama’s proposal to cap Public Service Loan Forgiveness.
