Time for a rant.
I must say, the U.S. Dept. of Ed (“ED”) has got to be the most dysfunctional agency in the history of everything. No, I am not exaggerating. The absolutely ridiculous mistakes that this agency makes constantly- constantly!- just baffles and frustrates me. It’s one thing when an organization or entity cannot tell its left hand from its right. ED doesn’t know that it even has hands, let alone a left one and a right one. Now that ED has contracted private federal loan servicers to manage the day-to-day operations of most federal loans, things have only gotten worse.
I haven’t been able to find a comprehensive list of all the ways ED screws up people’s student loans. So I thought I’d create one. I can’t make this stuff up.
