There has to be more options. Let me look into this. Give me a short time to get you some information. Who told you this? What agency did you speak with?
Do you mean the Federal Loan Servicing Center?
Are you in default with a private lender or the government?
What state are you in?
Yes. What state are you in?
eddebt.com is not the Federal Government. Do you know the name of the bank that you are in default with?
sallie mae is a private holder. Give me a few minutes. I am looking for some options in Florida for you.
Did you originally default on your loans and then go into Rehabilitation?
I'm here. I am researching options for you.
You may have to try to settle the loan telling Sallie Mae you cannot pay the lump sum. You have to indicate you are willing to make income based payments.
When you speak with Sallie Mae talk about your willingness to pay. Don't complain about the debt and say that you are no willing to pay.
You can also call the Florida Department of Education, Office of Federal Family Loan Program to see if they can help in any way. Here is the contact information
