Disabled Vets Could See Their Student Loan Debts Automatically ErasedJuly 7, 2019 | :
by Leo Shane III
Nearly 34,000 disabled veterans who haven’t paid back their federal student loans could see that debt automatically erased under bipartisan legislation proposed this week.
The proposal follows moves by the Departments of Education and Veterans Affairs last yearto alert more veterans about debt forgiveness programs for 100-percent disabled veterans. More than 42,000 individuals nationwide are eligible for the aid, potentially dropping tens of thousands of owed dollars from their financial records.
