Just as Mom and Dad sometimes forgive portions of a loan to you, the same can be said for the Federal government, which issues more than 10 million student loans a year.

Tip #3: Get the federal government to pay off up to $60,000 of your college debt.
The government’s Federal Student Loan Repayment Program can be a huge windfall to anyone with federal student loans (not private loans).
Administered by the Office of Personnel Management, this program allows any federal agency that you work for to pay off up to $10,000 annually of your federal student loans, up to a maximum of $60,000. For more info, call the OPM at 202-606-1800 or visit http://www.opm.gov.
