Consumer Complaint: I am currently under the REPAYE program and working towards PSLF while working at a qualified employer. when submitting my annual employment certification form which I have done many times in the past there was a discrepancy with the number of qualified payments between my subsidized loan and my un-subsidized loan by one payment. when I first called the discuss I spoke with someone at XXXX XXXX who did not understand the PSLF process and was told incorrect information about the amount that was needed to qualify for a payment. when I called again and found another representative I was told that in XX/XX/XXXX the payment, which i did not change and never do, was for XXXX XXXX less than the amount that it should have been therefore disqualifying that payment towards one of my loans for PSLF. The XXXX was charged in the month of XXXX. I was told that there was nothing that can be done about this but I do not feel that a mistake from the platform used by PSLF should be my responsibility. the payment for REPAYE is set by the department of education and I do not change the amount ever and would never underpay a loan by XXXX XXXX.
