Do I have to repay my Federal student loans out of my Social Security Disability benefits?

I saw this post from yesterday’s Wall Street Journal online edition indicating that a rising number of Americans are having their Social Security benefits cut to help repay student loans.

You will not have to repay your Federal student loans if you are getting SSDI or SSI benefits and you meet certain guidelines.  The most frequent type beneficiaries use is the “Total and Permanent Disability Discharge.”  Go to https://studentaid.ed.gov/repay-loans/forgiveness-cancellation#how-do-i-find to start the process.

When selecting an attorney to help you in your Social Security Disability claim, you should find out if he would represent you in this process.  It is standard procedure for me to help my clients, even after we win our claim.
