Loan forgiveness for pastors


PC(USA) Pastors Now Qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness

In July of 2021 the rules for who could qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness changed. Previously, anyone participating in work that included proselytizing, religious instruction or worship leading were not able to take advantage of this program. That rule has been struck and there is a huge opportunity for pastors to reapply and receive forgiveness for their federal debt.
