WOndering if anyone has been forgiven....if so how long did it take for the process from Dept. of Educaiton to do their part?
I got turned down this past year. All payments were not the correct plan and since I had one loan that was FFEL they would not count any payments to the direct loans. The strange thing is I was paying the standard which is more for me that an income based and they denied on that basis.
I saw an interesting article the other day on this. 28000 applied and 96 got it.
Luckily, they approved the emergency funds but only on a First come first serve basis. I can see this same thing happening in 10 years when the first applicants for IDR forgiveness will be eligible.
What are the emergency funds you are referring too?
Well I just made my 120th payment on 14 October! PSLF application has been approved by FedLoan and the package is off to Dept of Ed for final approval. Hopfully in the next few months I will have my forgivness!
Just an FYI! I have been forgiven... now we see what havoc it plays to my credit!
