Consumer Complaint: In XX/XX/XXXX I had submitted paperwork to update my public service loan forgiveness. The documents were approved but I was only awarded 2 credits rather than 9 credits. This was even though my paperwork showed I had been working for 9 months at an approved job based on the public service loan forgiveness guidelines. I contacted the people at myfedloan servicing. They said they would have to review each payment to confirm if a mistake was made. They said it ‘d take 90 days. After 90 days I contacted them again and they said it could take longer but the would expedite the process. That was 3 weeks ago at the beginning of XX/XX/XXXX. They still have not credited my account for work done or even contacted me regarding the issue.
