I have been asked for several years if any doctors have received public service loan forgiveness. Public Service Loan Forgiveness first became available in 2007. Since it is a ten year program, the first eligible recipients would be in 2017 but for various reasons a lot of people aren't going to be eligible for it until 2021-2023. Mostly because the program was not very well known when it first came out, as the doctor will mention in this episode. But I am excited to bring two special guests on the podcast today. I have been waiting to have guests like this on for three years. In this episode I interview Mariko and Dan about their experience working through the PSLF program for ten years and their recent success of receiving forgiveness. We talk about their experience with the phone calls, documentation, and time they put into fixing all the mistakes made by their student loan servicers. They share tips for those following in their footsteps. If you are thinking about going for PSLF or are currently working towards it, this is a must listen to episode. For the rest of you, we answer a couple of listener questions at the end about preferred stocks and Roth vs Traditional 401(k) contributions.
