Veterans Education Success, an advocacy group that focuses on student-veterans and had for months pushed the Trump administration to automatically forgive the loans, said it was “disappointed” that most of the loan cancellations had not yet been made.

“There are many barriers that have prevented veterans from applying for the program, so we are disheartened that this crucial program has not yet helped those who need it most,” the organization said in a statement. “Additionally, we hope that the Administration will consider refunding any illegally garnished VA disability benefits or tax refunds to those severely disabled veterans who are in default of federal student loans that should have already been discharged.”
