We’re all about helping people pay down their student loans and love to hear news like this. If you graduated from a school in the state of New York after 2014 and currently have an income under $50,000 a year, you might qualify for the “Get on Your Feet Loan Forgiveness Program”. This program will allow you to have the state cover your payments on your student loans for up to 24 months.
This looks like a great program for the state to be offering and for the qualified residents that may be struggling. Not only will this have an impact on those with student loans, but it could also give some encouragement to the high school students who are still contemplating taking the next step to college. Overall this is a great accomplishment for the state and the entire country. If this program shows signs of success for both parties then it could only be a matter of time before we see additional states creating their own similar programs.
We highly encourage our BrowseU users from the state of New York to take a look at this program to see if they qualify. If you’re not from the state of New York think about sharing this on social media and potentially help out another person who might not be aware.
