Why was he removed from the program?
DFAS, by policy, requires any debt to be repaid within 10 years.
That said, DFAS will consider suspension of or reduced monthly payments due to financial hardship. Each account is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. You'll need to contact DFAS, submit certain financial information, and negotiate lower monthly payments.If a reduced monthly payment plan is approved, you will be required to certify annually by providing an updated Financial Status Form and verification of full-time enrollment.
You can also apply to have the debt cancelled by applying to the Board for Correction to Military Records using a DD Form 149 and requesting termination of the debt.
If you have any further questions, I'd be happy to assist.
