Student Loans to be Forgiven for Totally and Permanently Disabled Veterans
In a presidential memorandum signed this afternoon, President Donald Trump moved to eliminate unnecessary paperwork burdens and ensure that all eligible disabled veterans can receive automatic discharges.
The move could bring an average of $30,000 in financial relief to more than 25,000 qualifying veterans by automatically forgiving them of their student loan debt.
Attorney General Jeff Landry voiced his praises for the Trump Administration saying:
“Once again, the Trump Administration has heeded the calls of state attorneys general and delivered great results for America’s veterans...I am grateful for President Trump’s willingness to consider and accept our bipartisan pleas to better protect those who once protected our Nation.”
