Does anyone have any experience with putting your Navient loans in forbearance? Which address for Navient did you choose? (There are two listed on my.americorps.gov) On the Navient side, did you choose General Forbearance, Mandatory Forbearance, or Student Loan Debt Burden?

Thanks! :)

Hi Katherine! 

I am going through the same process now with Navient. On MyAmericorps, choose the Wilkes-Barre PA address.

For the Navient side, I am still working through it but can probably save you from making some of the same mistakes. I applied for General Forbearance a few months ago, but they denied it because I had to wait until my grace period ended. I am applying again this month because my first payment is due next month. There is a specific CNCS Forbearance Request form you have to fill out to certify that you are doing AmeriCorps. I didn't know that until I called Navient to get clarification on why my forbearance was denied, since they didn't give a reason. I would definitely call their customer support and explain you need that form - you need a signature from someone in the state office, so it has to go through a few people. Ask your VISTA lead who you should send it to if you're not sure. Once I have that form all signed, I'm just going to apply for general forbearance again.

I hope this helped!

Hi All!

 

My loans are also through Navient, and i've actually chosen the Atlanta office and both time my loans have been put into forebearance with no troubles. If you type in Navient into the forebearance request it should pop right up!
