Product: Private student loan
Issue: Struggling to repay your loan
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have repeatedly tried to login to my account online, but the site claims that I have no record of a Navient Loan, formerly Sallie Mae. I have been offered a variety of repayment options, none of which I can particularly afford. I have also agreed to some of those terms, and the payments were rarely allocated to my account. I am not really sure how to pay when the customer service agents don’t call back or accept my payments when I call in. Overall I am not really sure how to resolve my balance which is 110 % more than what I borrowed. Don’t get me wrong, I am absolutely willing to pay, and attempting to pay, but there doesn’t seem to be a clear way to do so.
