Answer by Suddenly Human
I’m not sure what you mean by “damage”, but you can ask to have your student loan “discharged” because you became totally and permanently disabled and could not work.

Call your lender and request the paperwork. You will have to have your doctors sign off on it and it will take quite a bit of time, (they will prob still garnish your disability check until you are approved or denied). Usually your disability can not have been around BEFORE you took out the loan, it would of had to be something that occured after you took out the loan.

how to pay past college debt…?

Question by vanna: how to pay past college debt…?
Im wanting to go back to college this fall, but the only problem is i owe the college some money from a few years ago. And I have to pay it back before i can get my financial aid, which I need. I don’t owe that much about $ 500 or so. And I don’t have any dependable family to which I could possibly borrow from. So I guess my question will be is it at all possible to take out a student loan to pay past debt to the school? Thanks…

You would not be able to get a “student loan” from your school to pay for it, but you will probably be able to go to your primary bank and get a private loan to help pay it off.

Can you have a monthly payment on a cell phone itself?

Question by tdubbS31: Can you have a monthly payment on a cell phone itself?
I’m 16 and I want to buy the new Sprint/Nextel ic902 phone which is $ 300, but I don’t have the cash to pay for it all at once & I’m impatient 😉

So is it possible to pay like $ 50 a month or something along the lines of that for the phone itself, not the service because my parents have that covered.

Best answer:

Answer by Nunya B
unfortunately, because you’re 16, you cannot enter into a “contract” meaning, if someone “loans” you the money to pay for it and you agree to pay monthly, they cannot hold you liable for those payments, therefor there is no way you could get the phone without an adult purchasing it for you, then you paying them back.

I’m 19 and paying my own way through college. If I claim to be independent, will I qualify for grants?

Question by Jared H: I’m 19 and paying my own way through college. If I claim to be independent, will I qualify for grants?
I go to a major University with a decent good job. I am paying for everything myself, although my parents still claim me. As a dependent, I don’t qualify for federal aid. If I say that I am independent on my FAFSA and stuff, would I then qualify because I have such a low income?
By federal aid, I mean grants mostly. I’ve already started with Stafford loans. I’m living on my own, also.
Also, I meant to just say a “decent” job. Not “decent good”

Answer by Mystic
It depends. In my city, they didnt qualify me as independent till its been 4 years since I graduated High School. As long as you are listed as living under your parents roof, the grants will depend on how much THEY make, regardless if you are getting zero support from them.
