Product: Federal student loan servicing

Issue: Struggling to repay your loan

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I am needing to have someone investigate the interest on my student loans. I graduated in XX/XX/XXXX. My loans were consolidated with a principal amount of {$42000.00}. My loan was transferred to Navient in XXXX and had already accumulated over {$20000.00} in interest making the total for both subsidized and unsubsidized {$61000.00}. As of today in XXXX, I have an excess of over {$30000.00} in interest for my student loans. Never really explained the accumulation of interest when in forbearance. I am in an IBR repayment plan because I have never gotten a better paying job as of yet and it is very unfortunate for those of us who financially can not afford to pay the full payment to be hit with so much interest. My interest now is almost greater than the principle amount and this has burdened me mentally to know I owe so much and don’t have a clue how to pay this any other way but to continue to gain interest. This makes me feel that getting this education is more of a burden to me than it has helped my life and I find myself in tears a many times wondering how I will ever rid this debt without continuously gaining interest at the same time. As a single mom, I was unable to attend previously and after finally being able to go, I was was hoping to improve my income having graduated. This is now a burden to me and prevents me from getting ahead. I need someone to investigate the interest I am being hit with on this student loan ; its ridiculous that we as American citizens pay so much for an education and my now XXXX yr. old daughter who also received her XXXX degree, tells me she think education is over rated. What a punch to learn after 50 years of life and never being able to complete my education until the age of XXXX but with so much burden behind it.
