Our Impression of What the Company Offers to Consumers
I spotted an advertisement for student.getdebtaid.com.
The advertisement took me to a site that appears to be nothing but a lead generation site.
The claim is that people may qualify for student loan debt relief but no programs are actually expiring. In my opinion the advertisement is misleading.
The disclaimer they provide on the bottom of their website appears to be geared more for debt settlement than student loan help.
Since this appears to be a lead generator site, consumer have no idea who will receive their personal information.
The GetDebtAid.com website does not disclose where the company is located.

Student loan debt relief.
The advertisement offered by this company makes misleading claims.
- It claims it is a student loan reduction program when in fact they do not offer a program and are a lead generator.
- Claims student loan debt may be reduced but only a minority of students are able to get their debt forgiven or reduced.
- Claims a student loan debt reduction program will be ending soon but the Department of Education has no end in sight for their programs.
- Says student loans may be settled for less. There is not foundation for that statement.
I was unable to reach anyone by phone to inquire about the program.
My request for information was responded to by:
Thank-you for your online inquiry for help with your student loans. Just recently the government has released some new programs to help struggling students consolidate, and possibly lower their payments.
Please contact me at your earliest convenience, so we can analyze your situation and take a look at what programs are available for you. I’ve included an article to give you a look at the big picture of the Student Loan Debt in the US.
