Consumer Complaint Submission

Product: Federal student loan servicing

Issue: Struggling to repay your loan

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I was making monthly Student Loan payments ( to a now defunct XXXX University, XXXX XXXX ), after a forbearance period, when I had a XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ) in XX/XX/XXXX. The guidelines were made clear in the U.S. Department of Educations documents, even online, that such a Medical crisis is grounds to have a S. Loan ” discharged. ” After supplying the proper Medical documentation ( s ), I received a XX/XX/XXXX letter stating my Discharge was Approved. Some time later I began getting phone messages from the same company ( Nelnet ), stating my previously discharged account was ” reinstated, ” without explanation. I got a letter from them dated XX/XX/XXXX, I still possess. During that time I was maritally separated. We lost the home, etc. We filed bankruptcy and I’ve just discovered Nelnet is on the list of creditors to get a payment? I totally disagree with this payment so I contacted our Bankruptcy attorney. He stated Nelnet ” is ” on the list, and may only get a minor amount of the funding. He totally ignored my initial complaint of them being on the list, at all. After an initial XXXX, a second one is much easier to suffer. Nelnet had no regards for my health with their letters, calls, threats, and demands. I feel something nefarious and illegal may be going on here, with Nelnet getting an ” illegal ” cut of our Bankruptcy filing.
