Since the decision is's not-surprising to see that the U.S. Department of Education, still utilizes Social Security Administration data, to determine eligibility of disabled student debt holders, in its evaluation + decision of total and permanent disability discharge.

The "TPD" application website states that the U.S.Dept of Ed. is directly connected to the SSA database,and receives data that generates notices of potential eligibility for student loan discharge (forgiveness) and sends these notices to disabled student loan-holders.

If you visit the private contractor website,that handles "TPD" applications, you will see documents written and published by the U.S Dept., of Ed. that state there is an electronic link between the two agencies.. the website without the comma is disabilitydischarge,com the form OMB No. 1845-0065 expires on 9/30/19.......wondering if the decision would alter all dept.of Ed., utilization of.....SSA
