The CFPB’s Summer 2021 Supervisory Highlights: A Close Look at Student Loan Issues
We look at the practices found to be unlawful by CFPB examiners. In addition to “as low as” rate advertising by providers of private student loans that did not disclose rates were dependent on borrower creditworthiness, we discuss servicer practices involving: providing inaccurate information about eligibility for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, automatic placement in a natural disaster forbearance, failing to waive or refund overcharges imposed after servicing transfers of loans owed by borrowers enrolled in income-based repayment plans, and failing to honor borrowers’ standing instructions on payment allocation.
Chris Willis, Co-Chair of Ballard Spahr’s Consumer Financial Services Group, hosts the conversation, joined by Heather Klein, an associate in the Group.
