Department of Education Wants to Reconnect to Data From Social Security Administration

By on July 18, 2018

A notice out today says the Department of Education seeks the “re-establishment of the matching program between the U.S. Department of Education (Department) and the Social Security Administration (SSA). The purpose of the matching program is to assist the Department in facilitating borrowers who owe a balance on one or more student loans under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), should they wish to do so, to more efficiently and effectively apply for a total and permanent disability (TPD) discharge of their student loans. The matching program also will assist the Department in allowing recipients of Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grants under title IV of the HEA who are obligated to repay due to failure to complete their agreement to serve, should they wish to do so, to more efficiently and effectively apply for a TPD discharge of their agreement to serve.”

It is not clear to me who they “should they wish to do so” is for, the debtor or the Department. Hopefully, this notice is in an effort to improve the TRP process and not yet another move to undermine debtors seeking access to established programs.
