My name is Lynn S
I applied for disability back in 2004 and was granted disability status by federal judge for social security dating back to 1998. In 2003 I applied for a write off of my student loans due to my disabilities and was approved by Utah higher education! I was sent a letter stating that if I went three years with no job income that my student loans would be dismissed! In 2005I was contacted by the U.S Department of Education starting that my student loans were in default and were being sent to collections. I told them that it couldn't be because I was disabled and I had been approved for a disability discharge. I was told that the U.S Department of Education turned around and unapproved my disability status! The arguments went on till 2010 when they confiscated close to $5000 from my and my wife's income tax return. I three days later resubmitted the disability form which once again was approved. Nothing has changed with me being disabled other then the amount of surgeries I have had! The U.S Department of Education now refused to refund our money because they say that I filled for disability four days after it was confiscated legally entitling them to it!
1. There is proof that I applied back in 2003 for the disability dismissal and it was approved!
2. I have a federal judge stating that I was disabled clear back to 1998!
Now the federal government is trying to defraud close to $5000 from us due to a dishonest loop hole. I haven't had employment since 2001 because of my medical conditions. I Have met the U.S Department of Education requirement over and over again but they still choose to steal money from me and my wife rather then do what is right and honest!
We have thousands of dollars of medical bills, my wife has MS and is trying to work full time to support the family and supplement what little I get from social security! It is and always has been clear that I was and still am disabled since at least the year 1998! I have multiple volumes of Medical records from multiple hospitals and doctors offices! I have had over 80 surgeries since 1984 that is very well documented! The department of Education should not be allowed to get away with taking our money just because they cancelled the disability claim and then approved it again 4 days after they took our money! They even looked at their records and acknowledged the time line and that I applied in 2003 and was approved then denied in 2005 then re-approved 4 days after they confiscated our money! Don't allow them to get away with this dishonest act because of a clever loop hole! If they are allowed to get away with this with me and my wife they can do this to everyone and get away with it no matter how much proof there is against them! They claim that they denied the claim because they called the doctor and requested more information and didn't get it from the doctor. The doctors office told me that they couldn't legally give out any information because the department of Education didn't have a signed release form from me authorizing release of medical information! I wasn't ever contacted by the department of Education telling me that further information was needed ! The department of Education never sent me any release forms to sign to release any information to anyone!
Just another example of the federal government not caring about the people that they are suppose to be serving!
I also found a list of regulations and found that the Department of Education violated at least two of its own regulations intrying to verify my disability and if they would have folloeed through they wouldn't have stolen any money from me and my wife!!!!!!!
I have tons of proof to verify what I am claiming!
