Sign up for student debt clinics:
Time is running out to sign up for UUP student debt clinics in October to learn more about the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness program and income-driven repayment plans.
UUP members already enrolled in PSLF or are about to enroll can learn more about a limited waiver—that ends Oct. 31—to get previous student loan payments counted toward forgiveness, even if the borrower was not enrolled in PSLF at the time they made those payments.
Clinics will be offered:
Oct. 21: 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Oct. 22: 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m
