Dawg Tired Posted April 7, 2006 Report Share Posted April 7, 2006 When I first got sick I was trying to complete my degree and had some student loans. I had to drop out 4 weeks before the end of my Junior year and I called the state student loan agency and was told there were no contingencies for disability or illness so at that time I took a 6 month payment deferment. Months later, while talking to another representative of the agency he told me they DID have a provision for the loans to be dismissed in the case of total and permanent disability and he sent me the forms for my doctor and I to fill out. I took the forms to a visit to the doctor's office and we filled them out then I sent them in. Many months later I got a letter saying I was not eligible because they "hadn't received appropriate documentation from my doctor". I called, got another form sent to me, went back to the doctor, and mailed the info again. I then waited 3 weeks, called, and was told that everything looked fine. I asked how long this was going to take.... the woman I talked to then said the entire dismissal would be done "as soon as we see that you have had no earned income for 3 years... We will check your income tax returns". I have been wrestling with this since September of 2002.... TODAY I get a letter stating they did not receive documentation from my doctor and they are turning it over to a "national collection agency". Can I say I am angry???? How dare they cause me the stress!!!! I called them and was told they faxed my doctor in December for updated information on my condition to see if I have improved.... I told them my doctor was gone during December - and he was. So, she said she would re-fax the form for him to fill out, she refused to send it to me or send a copy to me so I could make sure it was filled out....
