Like so many others Nelnet gave me 9, 90 day lates on my credit reports due to their own system error and lack of proper record keeping. I was told my forebearance was approved and no need to worry about a bill. 90 days later my credit gets ruined.

Same thing happened to me concerning negative credit reporting, however in my case it was a bait and switch tactic . "Deferment" is the term Nelnet tells their customer servi...

Nelnet lied and jacked me around for nearly a year to steal my money. They got $2000.00 of money they weren't entitled to. How can you tell me I'm not disabled when they're taking money out of my disability check?

Nelnet Customer Care Review

Terrible terrible company. I strongly recommend not working with them. Despite me submitting forbearance paperwork every year, they continued to bill me and then say I was delinquent on payments even though I kept forbearing. Terrible customer service as well.

David agent in Omaha, NE was so combative during the call; I could visually see us two having an unnecessary fist fight.

There motto.... Were here to help.Help with what only collect your money... They cant *** interest.. can't settle on anything.. they have NO power to do ANYTHING.. USELESS.. Put in a complaint for them to pass on to Dept. of Education never heard anything.. Cant get ahold of anyone there either. The almighty Government at its best pay up or else. Wonder which one gets the kickback from Nelnet

My loan was in forbearance and I never received notice that it had ended and I needed to start making payments. All of a sudden I get an email that I was almost 90 days overdue and was about to be reported to the credit bureau. I contacted them and they told me I had...

Do not use NelNet. They do not deliver their promises and they are only a consolidating loan company rather than a Real Current SL forgiveness program. They were unable to pull up my loan agreement on my last call and doubtful the call was answered here in the US

We need a class action law suit against NELNET. I am sickened with what I have just experienced as a recent law school student graduate. I allege that NELNET intentionally delays receiving payment and is corruptly incompetent in order to continue to make profits off...

Nelnet is the most disgusting, incompetent, and corrupt student loan provider. I have to call almost every month because of some ridiculous error on their part or to remind them that they can't change my payment arbitrarily. Not only do they seek ways to get more money...
