Disabled veterans struggling with student loan debt will soon be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
The Trump administration has put in place a new executive action that will eliminate disabled veterans’ student loans.
The plan will help tens of thousands of permanently disabled veterans.
The executive action will wipe out an average of $30,000 of debt owed by more than 20,000 eligible veterans.
Veterans who are permanently and totally disabled are already eligible to have their student loan debt forgiven.
But this executive action makes it automatic.
