Student loan servicer agrees to produce requested records
On September 28, the Colorado attorney general announced that a Pennsylvania-based student loan servicer responsible for handling the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program has agreed to comply with a state law requiring consumer protection oversight. As previously covered by InfoBytes, the AG sued the servicer in May for allegedly failing to comply with state law when asked to provide certain documentation related to the servicer’s handling of the PSLF program during the Covid-19 pandemic. The servicer allegedly refused to produce the requested materials and only provided certain limited documents regarding non-government owned loans related to its business line. Under the terms of the assurance of discontinuance, the servicer (while denying any liability) has agreed to produce the requested records in compliance with the Colorado Student Loan Equity Act.
