When people think of Social Security disability, they primarily think of the monthly cash benefit that disabled individuals receive. However, this is not the only benefit that comes with a disability approval by the Social Security Administration. Access to health care through Medicare or Medicaid programs is also an important benefit. One additional benefit that is frequently overlooked, and that can help disabled Americans save lots of money, is Federal student loan forgiveness. You are eligible for Federal student loan forgiveness if: (1) you qualify for Social Security disability benefits, and (2) you are not subject to a disability review in the next five years. If you meet those conditions or you need additional information about Federal student loan forgiveness, click here to find the form that must be submitted. There is simply no reason not to take advantage of every benefit that comes with a disability ruling by the Social Security Administration.
