We’ve seen some confusion out there about whether those with disability discharges for federal student loans are required to provide income information going forward. This is because the new rule hasn’t yet gone into effect. But it will before the repayment pause ends so no worries.
The rule eliminates the three-year income monitoring requirement that too often caused borrowers to lose their discharges solely because they failed to respond to paperwork requests.
These Final rules will go into effect July 1, 2023.
You won’t see the revisions on studentaid.com or in servicer correspondence until after July 1, but the future income monitoring has been eliminated.
