President signs executive order to eliminate student debt for disabled veterans

Donald Trump

Disabled veterans struggling with student loan debt will soon be able to breathe a sigh of relief. President Trump is putting plans into place to eliminate student loan debt for tens of thousands of permanently disabled veterans.

The executive action will wipe out an average of thirty-thousand dollars of debt owed by more than 20-thousand eligible veterans.

Veterans who are permanently and totally disabled are already eligible to have their student loan debt forgiven but this executive action makes it automatic.
