Consumer Complaint: In XXXX of XXXX, I submitted a request for a cosigner release on three student loans, owned by XXXX and serviced by XXXX. The request was denied for a reason that was later determined to be inaccurate ( I made XXXX payment 16 days *early*, which violated a supposed rule AES had that ” regular payments for four years ” had to occur within 15 days of the due date – they had actually changed this rule to only refer to late payments ). Ultimately, after waiting for months, no response was given. I met all requirements for cosigner realease, as far as I am aware.
I submitted a second request for cosigner release in XXXX of XXXX. Since then, I have called AES multiple times and requested that they follow up with XXXX. XXXX has not responded to the request.
Waiting for 2 years for this process is unacceptable. I would like action from XXXX to review my request ( and hopefully approve it ), so that these loans can be removed from my mother ‘s credit report.
