Consumer Complaint Submission

Date Received: 2018-08-27T00:00:00

Product: Federal student loan servicing

Issue: Dealing with your lender or servicer

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I currently owe {$57000.00}, with a past due amount of {$3800.00}. My loan servicer is Nelnet, however, I think the real problem lies with the Department of Education.

I am willing and able to pay the student loan, however I no longer reside in the United States. I no longer have an American bank account and can not open one. I do not have a credit card in my name, so I can not make payments that way.

I do have a bank account and can make electronic payments. Nelnet informs me that Department of Education rules forbid them accepting payments from foreign banks. I can not find an appropriate way to lobby the Department of Education for some alternative.

Company: NELNET, INC.
