Should You Stay in a Job Because of Loan Forgiveness?
Play • 36 min

Changing jobs can lead to more than changes in your income. It could disqualify you from PSLF. But what if you’re in a job that makes you unhappy? Should you stay? In this episode, I answer those questions and more to help you decide if moving to the private sector is worth it.

In today’s episode, you'll find out:

  • What to do if you feel trapped in your public sector job
  • When is staying with a not-for-profit the best choice
  • How to decide if abandoning PSLF is a financially sound decision
  • The value of a 401k match, paid time off, and health insurance in your decision
  • How much more you need to earn to make up for the loss of PSLF
  • Whether you can switch back to the public sector and return to PSLF
  • The difference in value for PSLF between low- and high-income earners
  • Should you stay with a not-for-profit or open up your own private practice
  • The rule of thumb I use to compare the value of PSLF in your career
  • What to do if you’re on the fence about switching from PSLF to taxable forgiveness

In this episode, you’re going to be reminded why the security basket is so critical. I’m going to help you commit to getting financially organized and teach you the 4 things you must do to protect you and your family.
