Higher Education (TEACH) Grant service obligations more efficiently and

their loans under title IV of the HEA and TEACH Grant service 
obligations. The Department will proactively send notices to inform 
individuals that they may be eligible for a TPD discharge, provided 
that the VA has designated them as having a service-connected 
disability rating that is 100 percent disabling, or being totally 
disabled based on an individual unemployability rating, as described in 
38 CFR 3.4(b) and 38 CFR 3.340. Additionally, these individuals are 
eligible for a TPD discharge only where: (1) They owe a balance on any 
loans disbursed under the authority of title IV of the HEA, (2) they 
have had any loans under title IV of the HEA written off due to 
default, or (3) they are responsible for completing a service

discharge application, thereby making it easier for them to submit a 
TPD loan discharge application to the Department.
    Categories of Individuals: The VA will disclose to the Department 
information in VA's records about Veterans who are in receipt of VA 
disability compensation benefits with a VA determination that they have 
a 100 percent disabling service-connected disability rating or that 
they are totally disabled based on an individual unemployability 
rating.
    The Department will match this information on Veterans with its 
records on borrowers of loans under title IV of the HEA who owe 
balances on any loans or have had any loans written off due to default 
as well as on individuals who are responsible for completing a service 
obligation in exchange for having received a TEACH Grant under the 
TEACH Grant Program.
    Categories of Records: The records to be used in the matching

(DOB), and Social Security number (SSN) of all Veterans who are in 
receipt of VA disability compensation benefits with a VA determination 
that they have a 100 percent disabling service-connected disability 
rating or that they are totally disabled based on an individual 
unemployability rating, along with the VA disability determination date 
for each Veteran.
    The Department will match the data elements of name, DOB, and SSN 
received from VA with the Department's records on borrowers of loans 
under title IV of the HEA who owe balances on any loans or have had any 
loans written off due to default, as well as individuals who are 
responsible for completing a service obligation in exchange for having 
received a TEACH Grant under the TEACH Grant Program.

records in its system of records entitled ``National Student Loan Data 
System (NSLDS)'' (18-11-06), as last published in the Federal Register
