Product: Federal student loan servicing

Issue: Struggling to repay your loan

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: When I was in school for my XXXX to pursue for bachelor of XXXX degree, my student loan company ( navient ) put me into forebearance but I was accumulating interest of 11.6 % total interest on my two loans together. One loan unsubsized with 5.87 % and other loan subsidized with 5.87 %.

When I called navient for public loan forgiveness, they told me I had to work 20 hours a week and make monthly payment. It was very misleading as to how to stay on track for public loan forgiveness while working in XXXX as a XXXX for the past four years ( XX/XX/XXXX-XX/XX/XXXX ). Then, I called them last year to ask about public loan forgiveness eligibility criteria, they told me I have to work 10 years of full time in non-profit organization ( XXXX ) and not being in school status, before I apply for public loan forgiveness on my student loans. I didn’t know that before I called them. I kept track of every single payment since I started working at XXXX and XXXX XXXX. I felt I’m being deceived by navient and not fully understand of what I need to remain eligible for public loan forgiveness on my remaining student loan principle balance. I’m not satisfied with Navient at all.

After graduating from XXXX school in XX/XX/XXXX, I currently have been paying anywhere from {$100.00} to {$1000.00} a month for student loan. I do not believe navient student loan company properly allocate my student loan payment online. I was paying more and more but my principal balance doesn’t seem go down as it should. I have been mislead and so frustrated of being with Navient.
