Editor’s note: Be sure to check out our list of 85 Government Agencies that will pay off your student loans at the end of this post.
As you probably read in one of my previous articles on this topic, the program in which the government will pay off your federal student loans is called The Federal Student Loan Repayment Program.
It’s run by the Office of Personnel Management. Here is a direct link to more information about the program. http://www.opm.gov/oca/pay/studentloan/index.asp
At the website, be sure to click on the Fact Sheet and the Questions & Answers on the left side of the page for additional details. But to answer your question, in a nutshell, any participating federal agency for which you might work can help pay your student loans through this program, as long as that agency participates in this program.
Each year, participating agencies report to Congress about their activities in paying off employees’ loans. The 2008 Report to Congress from the Federal Student Loan Repayment Program is the most recent report available at the time of this writing.
Here is a link to that 38-page report. In it, you will find listings of every single government agency that participated in the Federal Student Loan Repayment Program for that year.
For more information about this program and about paying avoiding student loans and paying for college, be sure to read a copy of my book, College Secrets.
