Consumer Complaint: After speaking with multiple representatives from Key Bank and XXXX, I am still unsure as to the why I am no longer eligible for forbearance. I am told by the representatives that I have already exhausted my time in forbearance ; however they will not or can not explain the policy or law-basis for the time limit. Simply put, I would like to understand what the forbearance time limits are and what, if any, similar options are available.
I finished my degree on XXXX XXXX, XXXX. As such, I do not have the financial resources to pay the required amount owed. So, in an effort to determine and understand my forbearance options, I contacted both XXXX and Key Bank multiple times. My most recent attempt was a call on XXXX XXXX, XXXX which resulted in an attempted transfer to a manager by the representative, which resulted in 30-plus minute hold and then a call disconnect.
Because, after multiple requests, I have not received an explanation as to the basis for the exhausted time allotted for forbearance.
