Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I submitted my Department of Defense paperwork [ XXXX ] to be reviewed and forwarded so I can be repaid for my student loans on XX/XX/2018. After two weeks I called to ensure my paperwork was processed as normal. I was told my paperwork was lost and had not been touched since uploading it to their website. They reassured me that they would complete the work needing to be done and it would be resolved within a few days. I called approximately one time over the next 4 weeks only to be told nothing has been done with my government papers each time. My last phone interaction was XX/XX/2018 and I was told nothing has changed. For the last several years XXXX has processed my government paperwork within a few days. With every week that goes without them submitting my paperwork to the DoD, I am not getting repaid for my loans – and I am unable to use one of my military benefits defined within my government contract.
