Below are a few specific circumstances in which borrowers can benefit from the new limited PSLF waiver:

  • You consolidated FFEL loans to qualify for PSLF, but didn't get the payments you made on the old loan counted towards your forgiveness count.
  • You served in the military, Peace Corps, or AmeriCorps and your loan servicer automatically put you into forbearance, preventing you from getting that time counted towards forgiveness.
  • You were incorrectly advised to enter a repayment plan that was not eligible for PSLF while working for an eligible employer.
