***** If you are totally and permanently disabled per the Dept of Education’s definition, you may be eligible to have your entire Perkins Loan cancelled in full.
As of July 1, 2008, you are entitled to discharge of this loan in the total amount owed if the Dept of Veterans Affairs determines that you are unemployable due to a service-connected disability.
The only paperwork required of the veteran is a signed permanent disability application and a copy of the letter from Veterans Affairs.
For all others, a completed application, including detailed information about your medical condition, must be certified by your doctor. Your doctor must certify that you meet the definition of permanent disability and must give the date you became totally and permanently disabled.
Contact our office to request the necessary forms.
