Repayment Assistance Program for Students with Permanent Disabilities

The Repayment Assistance Plan for Borrowers with a Permanent Disability (RAP-PD) is available to borrowers with permanent disabilities having difficulty paying back their student loans. RAP-PD makes it easier to manage the student loan debt by reducing the monthly payment.

The monthly student loan payments would either be reduced or the borrower would not have to make any payments, depending on their financial situation and permanent disability-related expenses, which include allowable uninsured medical expenses, special care and other expenses directly related to the permanent disability. Enrolment is not automatic and they would have to re-apply for this plan every six months.

Further information on how to apply is available by calling (709) 729-5849 or 1-888-657-0800 or Email:
