The Department of Education will work alongside the Social Security Administration to find and assist individuals with disabilities who have taken out federal student loans and may be eligible for a Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) loan discharge. Under the new process, the Department of Education and the Social Security Administration will use a data match to identify eligible borrowers and inform them of the benefits of discharging loans and the steps that are involved.
