      I tried for the Public Service forgiveness. They transferred my loan from the servicer I was using to FedLoan so they could assess my 120 payments. I only owed about $1700, but I wanted it forgiven. They decided that my payments were set up incorrectly and didn't apply. Then they told me that I would need to continue my loan servicing with them and that they only had the option to place me on a ten-year payoff. That ten-year payoff plan was back-dated to when I graduated and had obviously lapsed since I had already made 10 years of payments. That triggered a late charge of 10% of the loan balance and an interest rate hike to 22%. The only options I had was to take the predatory loan terms or pay off the remainder of my loan and the person on the phone made me make that decision immediately. The 10% would kick in immediately upon getting off the phone. I got on the phone expecting relief and got off the phone with a significantly lighter savings account. That's not how this is supposed to work!

          New rules just fucked us. School was found guilty of fraud, now we can't file for relief on the federal loans.

              Blue collar workers don't want us to get help, even though the biggest problem is the interest, which we did not borrow.

                              My husband and I both graduated from BYU (as a mechanical engineer and a high school physics teacher, respectively) and because BYU tuition is only about $5k per year we managed to get through without loans. My husband had a scholarship and I used a hodgepodge of methods, including one year I paid out of pocket with my childhood college savings. I am so grateful for this miracle as I am becoming more and more aware how uncommon getting through college without loans is.

                                In the UK, I was the last generation to owe only £3000 debt for 4 years in University - awesome. Now students owe £27000 for the same duration for the same degree.

                                    Graduated in 2015 with $60K in student loans. Current total at $88K as of August 2019. I don’t make enough to pay off accrued intterest. These are all federal loans with fixed interest.

                                                  I was paying off my student loans every month, and feeling good about it, until I check my credit score one day and saw that all the progress I’d made to raise my credit, all the work and time and money and stress, was a wage. My score was still on a steady decrease. Called Nelnet and they said that shouldn’t be the case but no one has ever been able to help. So, I stopped paying. If my credit is going to be hurt anyway, what’s the point?

                                                    Thank you, Hasan, for making this depressing and frustrating topic informative and easy to understand. IMO, the US is fu$%ed. For example, I am sadly grateful my grandmother died so I could pay off my student loans. It's f-ed on so many levels. First, it means I'm privileged enough to come from a family whose grandparent had money left to give to their grandkid after they died. Second, she died due to a hospital being understaffed and unable to provide her care. They overmedicated her instead, which lead to her death, which allowed me to pay off my student loans. And on the topic of healthcare in the US being f-ed, I was hospitalized and told it would be paid for because I worked at said hospital. Three days and 30k later, I was discharged. Unable to pay off the 30k, I filed for bankruptcy (also privileged to at least have the funds to file for bankruptcy). BTW, bankruptcy does not relieve you of student loan debt. No, that stays with you and your family indefinitely. That is unless a family member passes and you can use your inheritance to pay it off. Do you see the layers of fu$%edupness that exists in the US? How are we the land of the free?

                                                                      Usually, the servicer won't demand this unless you're behind on payments. Either way, I didn't want to chance it. I used a personal loan to pay off my student debt so is enjoy a fixed rate and enjoy more reasonable terms.
