The SEIU Student Debt Navigator can help you get part, or all, of your federal student loans forgiven. This benefit for SEIU members helps you understand and manage federal student loans, find and apply for money-saving programs, and even get help filing the paperwork.
Locate eligible federal student loan repayment and loan forgiveness programs that can reduce your financial burden in three quick steps.
This members-only tool populates all the necessary information in the correct Department of Education application for you.
If you e-file directly through the Navigator, you save mailing time, improve your odds of qualifying, and prevent mistakes that could lead to lengthy application approval delays.
Because repayment plans require you to prove your eligibility each year, the Navigator helps you “recertify” for FREE by walking you through how to print and submit your paperwork by mail. Or, you can always save a step and e-file at the discounted SEIU member price.
