Consumer Complaint: I have been on IBR for a year due to my income. It was time recertification and I did not get the email in time. They debuted XXXX out of my account instead of the XXXX. I then had to call the bank to stop the payment but they couldnt and I had to file a claim. They did this twice in XXXX and again now in XXXX.
XXXX XXXX stated theta they put a hold on my recertification application but still put in for the money to be taken out. I was unaware of the hold until I called hem today. They said they couldnt stop it from being taken out because it has to be done within 3 days of the withdrawal. This has been an inconvenience and no one is trying to rectifying the problem. I want to pay my loan back but at the rate hat I was paying it last year.
