Where can I go to actually speak with or work with someone to get my student loans legitimately out of default and enter into a program to reduce the debt and work out affordable payments?

Hi Debra,

If your loans are in default you have to go through student loan rehabilitation. You simply follow the steps outlined here: https://thecollegeinvestor.com/15577/how-to-get-your-student-loans-out-of-default-with-rehabilitation/

Hi, quick question. Im new to the forum. I keep getting a call from a company called United Student Loan Aid. I currently took a side job to try and pay my loans off in 12 months so Im not too interested, but they wont stop calling. I just wanted to know if this company is a scam?

Never heard of them but they are likely a document prep company that is going to charge you to fill out simple forms that you don't need if you follow the plan you are already on.
