In October the American Federation of Teachers, the PSC’s national affiliate, filed a class-action lawsuit against Navient, a student loan servicer, for misleading borrowers in public-service professions to stop them from enrolling in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. The AFT is now exploring further legal action.

AFT Resources for Student Loan Borrowers
Thirty-two million Americans are estimated to be eligible for student debt forgiveness. Yet only 874,000 are actually enrolled in student debt forgiveness programs. The AFT has a website where borrowers can learn about federal programs that can help them to lower their monthly payments and, in some cases, even have their debt forgiven.
