Total Permanent Discharge
Eligibility Requirements to Receive Future Loans during TPD Discharge
A borrower, whose prior loan was discharged due to total and permanent disability, who
wishes to take out another Federal Loan must review and complete this form.
1. Obtain a certification from a Physician stating that you have the ability to engage in
substantial gainful activity.
*This generally means that you have sufficiently physically recovered to be capable of
attending school, successfully completing a program of study, and securing employment
in order to repay the new loan you are seeking.
2. By signing below, you acknowledge that neither the previous conditionally discharged
loan(s) nor the new loan you receive can be discharged in the future on the basis of any
injury or illness present when you applied for a total and permanent disability discharge
or at the time the new loan is made, unless your condition substantially deteriorates so
that you are again totally and permanently disabled.
*Your financial aid will not be processed without the physician’s certification to support
your request for new federal loans.
