Student Debt Relief
Help from Phoenix, Salt Lake City & Beyond Consumer Protection Attorneys
While there is a lot of talk in the news today about making college free or more affordable, nothing has changed yet, and students are still taking out loans in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to finance their education. As even bankruptcy will not clear student debt, many people overwhelmed by their loans feel hopeless about their future. The good news is that there are other solutions. At Law Zebra, our Salt Lake City and Arizona student debt relief attorneys can help you find out if you qualify for loan forgiveness.
Options for Getting You Out of Debt
You are expected to repay student loans regardless of your graduation status, ability to find work, or whether or not you were under 18 when you obtained the loan. However, there are some options to either having the debt amount reduced or forgiven altogether. Law Zebra is familiar with these offerings and can help you learn more about how they could apply to your situation.
Some options for loan forgiveness include:
- Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program: If you work for a government agency or non-profit, you could qualify for loan forgiveness once you have made at least 120 monthly payments of your debt.
- Federal Perkins Loan: Teachers may be eligible for loan forgiveness if they serve students in low-income communities, individuals with disabilities, or are involved in teaching STEM subjects.
- Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program: After five complete, full-time years teaching, some teachers are eligible to have up to $17,500 forgiven from their student loans.
- Total and Permanent Disability Discharge: If you can prove that you are no longer able to work due to a major disability, you may not have to pay your loans back.
- Closed School Discharge or False Certification Discharge: Some schools are either incapable of providing an education or do so under false pretenses. These loans may also be forgiven.
