Total and Permanent Disability Discharge (TPD)

A total and permanent disability (TPD) discharge relieves you from having to repay a William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program loan, a Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program loan, and/or a Federal Perkins Loan or to complete a TEACH Grant service obligation.

* You can show that you qualify for a TPD discharge by providing documentation from one of three sources: the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Social Security Administration (SSA), or a qualified physician.
