People with disabilities have an increased likelihood of experiencing financial insecurity. Student loan obligations may contribute to this financial distress. However, federal student loans have a range of protections under federal law. These protections are designed to prevent borrowers from struggling with unaffordable monthly payments.

Student loan borrowers with disabilities face unique challenges when repaying student loan debt. Last year, the Department of Education identified approximately 387,000 borrowers with severe disabilities that were eligible for Total and Permanent Disability Discharge, 179,000 of which were in default.
