My student loans have been forgiven. They are gone. They are ex-loans. I am, at 45, done paying for my degrees.
If you work for a school district (even if you don’t teach; literally just if you work for a school district) or are in any way involved in public service at your job and you have existing student loans, click here and check the TEPSLF program out right now. (Note that to the best of my knowledge everything in that piece is still accurate except for the refund check, which I think only applies if you’re still making payments while they’re processing your paperwork; those specific payments will be refunded. I no longer think I get any of my excess payments back, although I’d love to be wrong.)
Close to 70 grand, y’all. Poof.
I’d like to issue a public thank you to the Biden administration.
Happy motherfuckin’ Monday.
