I am a Disabled Student on SSI. My School is Asking Me to Pay. – Devon

“Dear Steve,

I am a disabled student. I am currently working on my Master’s. Some of my classes and financial aid has gotten messed up. Now 2 schools are making me pay for classes. The cost adds up to about $7000. I receive SSI and can barely afford my bills.

Is there anyway I can try to fix this? I really don’t want my credit to be ruined even more. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Dear Ravon,

It is unclear from your question if were getting financial aid for school you did not have to repay or student loans.

Did the schools enroll you solely on financial aid or grants you did not have to repay?

Also, what type of debt are they claiming you owe? Is it student loans and if so, are they government backed or private loans?

I need more information to help.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.
