Student Loan Discharge
The U.S. Department of Education has a program that is available to those who have Federal Student Loans, but cannot pay them due to their total and permanent disability. This process is very detailed and there are very strict documentation requirements.
If you have been deemed totally disabled by the Social Security Administration and are receiving Social Security Disability benefits, then you are eligible to have your Federal Student Loans administratively discharged. In other words, you will be release of the obligation to pay these loans. Just recently, here at DebtDoc, we were successful in obtaining a Total and Permanent Disability Discharge of $80,000.00 in Federal Student Loans.
Additionally, if you are a military veteran, and have been determined to be disabled by the Veterans Administration, your Federal Student Loans can be discharged under the Total and Permanent Disability Discharge process. We assist disabled military veterans with this process in order that they may recover and move forward without having the financial burden of any Federal Student Loans.
Many disabled people who have Federal Student Loans can be eligible for a Total and Permanent Disability Discharge of their loans if their doctor has made such a determination. Again, this process is very technical. Here at DebtDoc, attorney Chris Bush can help.
