Can Navient Put Me in Default? I Struggle to Pay for Food Now.

Written by Steve Rhode


Dear Steve,

I borrowed from Sallie Mae who apparently switched to Navient, when my daughter was in college.

The loan is now about 16000. My daughter never graduated. I can’t pay the loan at all because I only have social security to live on.

I get help from social services. Navient threatens to put me in default.

I am now 74 years old, with health problems of my own. I don’t make payments to Navient because any payment I made would eliminate food, electric and phone.

Before the depression, I used to do all right. My self-employment work stopped in 2011 before I wanted to retire. Do you have any advice for me?

Can I be sued for default? What can they take from me?



Dear Mark,

To best answer your question I absolutely need to know if these are federal student loans or private student loans Navient is managing.

Please post your answer in the comments section below and I can give you some specific advice.
