How to verify your employers eligibility?

Watch an info video here or see the instructions below.


Go to the federal government's PSLF Employer Search Tool


Search for your employers by entering their Employer Identification Number (EIN).

TIP: You can find your employer’s EIN on your W-2, by asking your Human Resources department, or by searching online. You can also check the IRS Employer Identification Number search tool. All employers, including the government, should have an EIN number.


The results will indicate whether the employer is eligible or ineligible.
