Product: Private student loan

Issue: Struggling to repay your loan

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I currently owe over {$130000.00} in student loan debt, {$44000.00} of this debt is serviced by AES. I am currently 71 days past due with my loans with AES. I have called multiple times monthly asking for repayment options that will lower my current {$400.00} payment. One person told me that I was eligible for a reduced repayment plan for one of my loan packets, that would allow me to pay a lower payment for 1 year. I paid the {$50.00} payment to get that started, but was later told I did not qualify for it. Ive begged and pleaded with AES for options as I want to pay my loans, but I cant afford the monthly payment. I have three other loans companies to pay monthly. Ive written letters to AES for them to forward to the banks, but I was told that my request for longer loan terms was denied. This is depressing, as I feel I have no way out of this debt. Each time I call Im given the run around. I just paid a payment and it looks like it only took 20 days off, oppose to a full month. This is ridiculous
