Consumer Complaint: So I started off with XXXX on my loan in XXXX. Now I ‘m up to XXXX on the same loan. I have been dealing with Navient who holds my loans. The loans have been put on forbearance and now been on income repayment plan but no matter what I do, my loan keeps going up XXXX dollars every year. This last time I asked why and they said it was the interest but if I look on the documents they gave me for all the income repayment plans and forbearance is explained the opposite. I also try to claim that when I graduated from XXXX, the loan was higher then what I applied for. XXXX XXXX/ Navient never looked into for me. I need help!
