DebtDoc attorneys feel strongly about addressing the Discharge of Federal Student Loans if a Military Veteran is disabled because of a service related injury.

As we all know, in today’s economy student loans seem to haunt every generation. The most recent graduate, who finds their student loans are not due for the first time, recognizes this. The student loan borrower who has exhausted their very last deferment is feeling the pinch. Even those who are drawing Social Security or other Federal Benefit, may realize the catastrophic  economic impact of the offsetting of their benefits.

However, nothing is more injurious to our Disabled American Veterans who find themselves lost and confused because they have U.S. Veterans Benefits that are insufficient in addressing their living expenses and their Federal Student Loans.

The U.S. Department of Education has a Student Loan Discharge program for Disabled Veterans. If a Veteran is unemployable due to a service connected disability, as determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, then the Veteran may be able to Discharge his or her obligation to repay their Federal Student Loans, without regard to balance owed or status of collections.

Additionally, there are two other extra benefits for the Disabled Veteran who qualifies. The first being that any and all amounts paid to the Federal Student Loans, are refunded to the Veteran and retroactively applied to the date of Disability Determination. The second, there is no requirement for any monitoring of the Disability. Both are extremely beneficial to the Disabled Veteran.

Call to Action: 

If you find yourself unable to address your student loans, and are drawing benefits under Social Security, Social Security Disability, State Disability, or any Disability Rating by the Veterans Administration, please contact a DebtDoc attorney for an evaluation of your financial situation.

These programs are available to Veterans and Retired Persons.

Auto Loan Delinquency Rising

Late Car Payments?

The number of people 90 days late in car payments approaching peak levels since the subprime crisis of 2010.

If you’re late on your car payments, come in for a Chapter 13 consultation!

Compassionate. No-nonsense. Great job. Saved me $85K!

I had three choices: two large groups, or DebtDoc. I chose DebtDoc because of their numerous excellent reviews from clients as well as other attorneys. Also, I wanted someone to provide personal service and have a vested interest in my difficult student loan case.

I certainly made the right choice. DebtDoc's attorneys personally answered two of my phone calls and regularly answered my emails, even on one Sunday evening.

After 30 years of student loan "prison", he got me freedom AND he even got the US Dept. of Justice to dismiss 25% of my loans, which saved me $85K.

I feel like I have a new lease on life because of DebtDoc. I wish I could recommend 10 stars.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
DebtDoc's attorneys are extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted DebtDoc and found them to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. They were sure they could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months they successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend DebtDoc.
Sincerely,
