Repayment Assistance program for Borrowers with a Permanent Disability
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 for you to manage your student loan debt by reducing your monthly payment. (source)
Under the Repayment Assistance Plan for Borrowers with a Permanent Disability:
- Your monthly student loan payments would either be reduced or you would not have to make any payments, depending on your financial situation and permanent disability-related expenses, which include allowable uninsured medical expenses, special care and other expenses directly related to your permanent disability.
- Enrolment would not be automatic and you would have to re-apply for this plan every six months.
How do I apply?To apply:
complete an online application through your NSLSC Online Services account (you can register for an online account first if you do not have one already); or
download a RAP application and mail it to the NSLSC.
