    Are student loans forgiven in cases of undue hardship, the brunner test, or totality of circumstance, with mental health issues in Missouri? If so, what is required/needed to start this process?

    Is this for a federal student loan?

    You can look into getting a deferment due to hardship. Having the loan erased off the books is unlikely.

    Yes. It's actually in regards to my husband. It's a federal loan. He had it on deferral, now PAYE. With little as he makes, and now his diagnosis of mental illness, it's become a whole lot more difficult.
