re: At least half of students defaulted or failed to pay down debt within 7 years - Patron Saint
I just looked at the federal government website regarding loans. As far as I can tell, total and permanent disability only allows forgiveness of FFEL, Perkins loans, Ford Direct loans, and TEACH grants. I don't see anything saying that Stafford loans are eligible. Either way, you would have to meet ...

[quote]What's the process for doing that? I work for a nonprofit[/quote] Just google PSLF and you should find it. If you've refinanced your federal loans into private loans, you're ineligible. Only federal loans under an eligible repayment plan are able to be forgiven under PSLF....

[quote]It's called death or permanent disability. [/quote] Actually, disability does not qualify you for loan forgiveness, only death. Even if you declare bankruptcy, your student loans aren't forgiven. That's why anyone with student loan debt should take out disability insurance as soon as they ...

Federal loan forgiveness already is a thing. It's called Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and you qualify if you work for a 501(c)(3) organization for 10 years and make 120 qualifying payments (monthly payments for 10 years). Once you make the 120 payments, the remainder of the loan is forgiven as l...

re: At least half of students defaulted or failed to pay down debt within 7 years - Patron Saint
It's kind of ridiculous to take out massive loans for undergrad in the first place. If the parents can't afford the school and you can't get scholarships, then go to a cheaper school or go to a community college for two years before transferring. Graduate school or professional school is a different...

re: MLB approves no-pitch IBB for 2017 pending union approval - Patron Saint
Not a fan at all. Say there's a runner on 2nd base and you are intentionally walking the batter to set up a force play at 1st, 2nd, or 3rd base. The runner at 2nd at least has the option of attempting to steal 3rd base with the current rule, but this rule change would eliminate that. I know that wou...

re: Is Joe West the worst umpire in MLB? - Patron Saint
Angel Hernandez is by far the worst, and CB Bucknor is right behind him. I don't think I've ever watched a series in which Hernandez was the umpire that didn't involve him becoming the center of attention and being yelled at by at least one player or manager. ...
