This podcast episode was updated on November 26, 2019 to reflect an edit that was made to the response to the question on public service loan forgiveness (PSLF). The answer originally misstated that in order for the PSLF program to forgive the remaining balance on a student’s direct loans, 125 qualifying payments must be made over the course of approximately 10 years. The correct number of qualifying payments is 120. This portion of the response has been removed.
