The Department of Education has identified 42,000 veterans who are entitled to a federal student loan discharge without any risk of paying federal taxes on the forgiven debt.
However, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has said even though the Department of Education has matched student loan records with disability records from the Department of Veterans Affairs, veterans can only be eligible if they obtain, sign, and return an application.
The nonprofit group Veterans Education Success has said, “It is not fair to ask severely disabled veterans to have to complete paperwork, especially given that some catastrophic disabilities will interfere with their ability to complete the paperwork.”
Currently more than 25,000 of eligible veterans for discharge are in default on these very loans.
