If you’ve been following my chronicles of my student loan consolidation ‘project’… here’s a little update.
On March 14, 2011 – Student Loans = Devil where I worked through our options.
On April 28, 2011 – Sallie Mae is the Devil where I discussed my overt hostility with student loan giant, Sallie Mae.
On October 13, 2011 Student Loan Consolidation Part 13728974198 (or something like that) where I laid out all the crap that has gone wrong so far.
On November 17, 2011- World’s Worst Blogger where I discussed my not so completed student loan refinancing.
Ok, now that you’re caught up. I’m going to remind you that today is February 21, 2012.
I check my student loan account like I am so used to doing at this point biweekly and notice I have a new payment amount. The last person I talked to told me to call back and add ANOTHER forbearance if Superman’s payment wasn’t adjusted to work with mine. I called today and was informed that these ASSHOLES think I make $53,124 annually (not including Superman’s military pay).
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
For the record, if I made $53,124 annually, I’d be effin’ stoked. I’d be so stoked as a matter of fact that I wouldn’t have asked for IBR. But alas, it’s jut a farce. I make less than $20k/year. FANTASTIC. No wonder why I can’t get my payments settled correctly. And for the record, I am NOT paying $235/month on IBR when overpaying my loan does not help me.
Insert another forbearance until next month. I am so over talking to college kids or pre-college kids… or more likely no-college kids who don’t care about their jobs enough to try and fix the situation that I’ve been having repeatedly. I want them to get it right. Every time I get off the phone with them they promise to get it fixed within 7-10 business days (actually 19 business days currently) and they make you feel like they’re doing something. Not this time, I no longer trust them to fix a problem anymore. I trust them about as much as I can find them.
I just want everything to settle out. This is so ridiculous anymore.
Oh and thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday! 🙂
