Trump Administration to Automatically Forgive Federal Student Loan Debt for Totally and Permanently Disabled Veterans

LOUISVILLE, KY— Today, President Donald J. Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum that will significantly streamline the process to erase federal student loan debt for totally and permanently disabled veterans. Through a process called Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Discharge, veterans will now have their student loan debt discharged unless they decide to opt-out of the process.  The Department anticipates notifying more than 25,000 eligible veterans and continuing the discharge process on a quarterly basis.
