I found this and thought some of you may find it helpful. Your federal financial aid can be forgiven if you prove you are disabled. It looks like you don't have to be approved for social security to do this. A doctors certification or statement from the VA that you are unable to work and your condition is long term is acceptable.
Wow, that is absolutely fantastic!!! I think its a wonderful thing that someone who legitimately is disabled and unable to earn money can have their student loans forgiven. That has to be a huge relief for those who have outstanding loans and don't know how they are ever going to be able to pay them back. Thanks for sharing that information. I will pass it on to folks that I know who have college loans to pay and are not able to work any longer.
Good to hear about your loan forgiveness. I now receive ssd. Warning warning. Do not try talking to representives who call about making monthly payments. How you will know is how nice they r on the phone and when starting to ask questions, they turn psycho and rude. Go to student loan forgiveness only. I learned also to get that form in early. The government will give u back payments you've made but only if u have a date that u send in your form and not before that. They returned my last payments I had made, $600.00 I cannot earn a certain amt of income,lest I make money over the yrly amount they will reinstate my loans. It helps if you r a nurse, police, teacher but go for it. I had $156,000.00 forgiven good luck.
