Issue: Struggling to repay your loan

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: At the beginning of the month I agreed to participate in a payment payment plan to prevent my account from defaulting. On XX/XX/2018 due to an error in my original payment I agreed to pay XXXX dollars towards a forbearance that would prevent the default. The payment plan was agreed to pay XXXX a month for three months consecutively.
I received an approval letter on the XX/XX/XXXX for the forbearance.

Not until the XXXX was I notified that there was an issue with the payment. Apparently my bank rejected the check however my bank stated they have no record of this payment coming through.

Now navient is refusing to give me the forbearance after taking my card payment for XXXX dollars. Stating that I will have to pay XXXX plus XXXX in order to stop my account from defaulting.

I am barely able to make the monthly payments and now because of an error on there part that they admitted to now my credit will be affected.
