Will collection stop while I’m waiting for a reply to a discharge application?

Yes. In most cases, loan holders are required to stop collecting once they receive a completed discharge application. You can also request forbearance so that collection stops while you are gathering information for your application.  However, the government says that it has the right to continue Social Security offsets while the application is pending.  You may ask for a hardship suspension.
