Hi all, I happened to come across an article describing a new student loan program offered by the federal government, and one interesting aspect of the program is that you can get a portion of your loans forgiven if you spend 10 years working in a "public service" career for a qualifying government or non-profit employer. One of the specifically mentioned types of employers are those who serve the disabled or the elderly. You can find further details in the downloadable article at: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1014622 Make note that note only does your employment career and employer have to qualify, but the type of loan that you take out originally must also qualify. hth, Chip Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI and please make suggestions for new material. if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
