Department of Education Federal Student Aid Ombudsman
Student Loan Dispute Resolution
When a borrower has an issue with a student loan, they may try calling
their loan servicer, a lawyer, or the Department of Education (DOE) Federal
Aid Ombudsman's office. At the Law Office of Simon Goldenberg PLLC,
we help defaulted borrowers explore their resolution options, which may
include consolidation, rehabilitation, forgiveness, or even a settlement
to reduce the student loan debt. However, these services are not necessarily
the right fit for everyone.
For example, there was a borrower who had paid off his federal student
loans, or at least he thought he did. The borrower's bank pulled back
a portion of the funds that were paid to the lender over a year after
the payment was made. This caused the lender to re-activate the balance
and retroactively tack on the interest that had accrued.
Although our lawyers try to be of assistance where possible, in situations
where the borrowers goal is other then resolving a defaulted loan, we
may recommend they contact the Federal Student Aid Ombudsman.
The Ombudman's office may assist with issues pertaining to:
- FFEL - Federal Family Education Loans
- Federal Direct Loans
- Federal Consolidation Loans
- Perkins Loans
- Federally Guaranteed Student Loans
According to their website, they are a neutral resource for federal student
loan dispute resolution. Calls with them are confidential.
