I want to certify that I work for a qualified employer in order to qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness. What do I do?

Answer: Complete the Employment Certification for Public Service Loan Forgiveness to keep track of your eligible employment and qualifying loan payments under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.

You can download a blank form directly from the U.S. Department of Education.

You will need your employer’s help to complete the certification form. Complete sections one and two on your own, then ask your employer to complete and sign section three before you submit the form. Some employers may already have an established process for submitting this form. You should check with your employer for more information.
