Product: Federal student loan servicing
Issue: Dealing with your lender or servicer
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I applied for Public Service Loan Forgiveness from the U.S. Department of Education ( XXXX XXXX ) and was told I do not have any ELIGIBLE loan types. With all due respect, I think they are mistaken and may have inaccurate information. I called XXXX and was told to contact my current loan servicer, Nelnet. Before Nelnet, my servicer was XXXX XXXX for XXXX XXXX directly after graduation from the University of XXXX in 2006. It seems possible that a data entry error could have occurred in the transfers.
I have attached documents that I believe prove the eligibility of my loans. If my student loans are not eligible for PSLF, I would like a thorough explanation concerning WHY they are not. I see William D. Ford Direct Loan Program as well as Federal Family Education Loan Program on the consolidation papers. I simply do not understand what the problem is. If I can find evidence that the loans ARE eligible, I can and will re-apply for the loan forgiveness. Thank you for any help you can give me.
