DOE Urged For Student Loan Discharge For Disabled Veterans

LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has joined a coalition of 52 Attorneys General urging the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) to automatically forgive the student loans of veterans who became totally and permanently disabled in connection with their military service.

Last year DOE identified more than 42,000 veterans as eligible for student loan relief due to a service-related total and permanent disability, the Attorneys General note in their letter to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Fewer than 9,000 of those veterans had applied to have their loans discharged by April 2018, however, and more than 25,000 had student loans in default.      MORE
