Let’s get straight down to business. Here is the current state of our loans:
It definitely feels good to see these numbers going down. For my law school summer loan listed above, I had to call and email several people to track down the entity who my loan has been passed on to. I think the way student loans are handled is SO messed up. I should, at the very least, get notice of who I am responsible to for payments, ideally before the loan gets sold away or at a minimum, when it happens. I do not like that loan servicers seem to presuppose that folks would never pay their loans off early. The cynic in me wonders if they actually would prefer that I not pay my loans off early.
I really felt like my loan servicer didn’t want to be found. Interest on that loan doesn’t start accruing until March, so I want to pay it off before then. Luckily I found it! Shouldn’t have been that hard. Just saying.
Happy Holidays! I hope you have less debt than us! 🙂 🙂 🙂
