Consumer Complaint: Most importantly, I am XXXX since birth, XXXX and XXXX XXXXXXXX, and a XXXX XXXX. it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to contact Navient, because NONE of their phone numbers are accessible to persons who use XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX in XXXX XXXX XXXX, Furthermore, my problems with them began because their loan documents are much too small to read, their ” instructions ” are even worse to read and understand, and I had to ask my other XXXX XXXX friend to become my Cosigner for the loan. After I was granted the Cosigned Loan in our about XXXX, I received a Forebearance after I graduated, and Navient NEVER TOLD ME CLEARLY what was the EXACT DUE DATE for repayments to begin after the Forebearance. There is some kind of ” rule ” at Navient that the person must make all payments due ON TIME for the first two years, and they will then release the Cosigner. I missed only one payment during the first two years, because Navient did not clearly notify me of the Due Date, BUT SINCE THAT TIME, all of the monthly payments have been made ON TIME. They still refuse to release the Cosigner, and they wo n’t permit a replacement Cosigner. My original Cosigner is now XXXX and he wants a peaceful life, but he is STUCK by Navient, and he is very upset, and so am I, This is RIDICULOUS.
