Total and Permanent Disability Student Loan Discharge Student Loans often cannot be discharged in bankruptcy, but there are options for student loan discharge for federal student loans. If you or your client are a 100% service connected veteran, receiving Social Security Disability with a 5-7 year review cycle (medical improvement unexpected), or your treating medical provider believes you have a disability that has lasted or will last for 60 months, we can help you get your student loans discharged. Disability Planning With the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacting individuals with pre-existing conditions and at times requiring breathing tubes or life support, it is now more important than ever to have a Living Will and Healthcare Proxy. Advance Directives or Living Wills are critical because they allow you to have a voice in your medical care even when you are too sick to speak up. Similarly, powers of attorney both for healthcare and your finances ensure that your needs are met when an emergency arises. Rent doesn't go unpaid because you are sick. Having trusted decision makers in your time of need is key. We also provide Special Needs Trusts, if your family member is unable to handle their money, needs help from SSI, Medicaid, or state based benefits, we can help create a plan for financial security without losing the benefits and consistency they rely on. Disability Based Family Law Consults Are you a family law attorney dealing with divorce, child support, or spousal maintenance and one of the parties received benefits from the Social Security Administration? If so, we can help. We know the ins and outs of Social Security Law, so you don't have to. We can provide valuable insight into the impact of Social Security benefits on support obligations and ensure you put your client in the best financial position. If nothing else, don't forget a marriage needs to last ten years to collect off of a spouse's earnings record.
