DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, US DEPT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS
U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Team Up to Simplify Student Loan Discharge Process for Disabled Veterans
The U.S. Department of Education has partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to make it easier for America’s disabled veterans to have their federal student loans discharged. Starting this month, the Department of Education will begin matching borrowers on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®), who have federal student loans or aid through the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program, to the VA database. Borrowers positively identified in the match will be mailed a customized letter that will explain eligibility for loan discharge and include a total and permanent disability (TPD) application. The borrower can sign and return the application to complete the process of applying for a TPD discharge. For more information about TPD discharge, including the TPD discharge application, visit disabilitydischarge.com.
Earlier this year, the CFPB highlighted this issue in a blog about new protections for disabled veterans with student loans. We highlighted a recent change in federal law that ensured disabled veterans with student loans forgiven on or after Jan. 1, 2018, due to “death or total and permanent disability” no longer have to pay federal income taxes on those forgiven loans.

Guardians are essential to the success of the Honor Flight Southern
Nevada Program. Without these hard working individuals we would not be
able to carry out the dreams of so many veterans, enabling them to see
the memorials built in their honor. Guardians will have a great time,
seeing these memorials through these hero’s eyes. The Guardian is
responsible for all of their expenses, paid to Honor Flight Southern
Typically during our trips, we try to pair up veterans either one-on-one
or two to one guardian, if they are able bodied veterans. Even before
the veterans arrive at the airport, the guardian’s responsibilities
begin with introductions at the Flight Orientation. Once the veterans
start to arrive, guardians will ensure boarding passes and IDs are
available, get the veterans through security and to the gate, assist in
Because of the role of the guardians, it is important guardians be able
to push a wheelchair all day – up inclines, lift a wheelchair on and off
the bus, help should someone fall and in general be observant at all
times to what is going on with the veterans. Spouses may not serve as
guardians. There are physical requirements for Guardians and it is not
to be taken lightly.
From the moment the veterans are in our hands until we return them to
their loved ones in the evening, guardians will be asked to treat these
heroes as if they are family and ensure that every veteran has a safe,
memorable, and rewarding experience. Guardians are volunteers and are
expected to pay for their trip. It may seem odd to pay to volunteer as
a Guardian, but we could not make these trips possible without the
Guardian paying for their expenses.
So if you’d like to be a Guardian on a future Honor Flight, go to
HonorFlightSouthernNevada.org, look on the right side of the web page
and find Online Guardian Application. Click the link and fill out the

Thank you for your continued support.
